Recommendation for Admission Form

Each applicant must submit three Recommendation for Admission forms (Feb. 1 deadline has passed, this form is no longer available) to the School of Pharmacy via US mail or courier. In addition to the recommendation form, references must submit a comprehensive letter of support. As a courtesy, you may want to provide these individuals with a pre-addressed, postage paid, envelope to return the recommendation to our office at KU School of Pharmacy, Office of the Dean, 2010 Becker Dr., Room 2050, Lawrence, KS 66047. We recommend that your references be current and include a professor and present or former employer with whom you have interacted within the past 24 months. It is highly recommended that you have one recommendation from a pharmacist. If you do not know a pharmacist, you are encouraged to obtain an introduction to a pharmacist and discuss with him or her your aspirations for a career in pharmacy. If you obtain a recommendation from a pharmacist who is a new acquaintance, you may submit that letter as a fourth recommendation.

Official Academic Transcripts

All transfer student applicants must submit official copies of their academic transcripts directly from ALL institutions they have attended to the KU Office of Admissions and Scholarships. We strongly recommend that academic transcripts of transfer student applicants reflect coursework completed through summer 2017 be submitted prior to December 31, 2017. Transcripts for coursework completed in the fall 2017 semester can be submitted following completion of the fall 2017 semester.

Students who are enrolled at the University of Kansas during the fall 2017 semester are not required to submit transcript records as they are already on file at the University of Kansas.
