The Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) is an exam developed by PsychCorp, a brand
of Harcourt Assessment, Inc.
The PCAT is a specialized test that helps identify qualified applicants to pharmacy
schools. It measures general academic ability and scientific knowledge necessary for
the commencement of pharmaceutical education.
The PCAT is constructed specifically for pharmacy schools. The PCAT consists of approximately
280 multiple choice questions and an essay, and candidates are given four-and-a-half
hours to complete the exam.
The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) endorses the PCAT as the official
preferred admission test for entrance to pharmacy college.
The PCAT Exam must be taken within three years of application to the Lloyd L. Gregory
School of Pharmacy.
Please submit PCAT scores directly to PharmCAS. The PharmCAS PCAT code is 104.
