We are no longer accepting freshman applications for Fall 2013 for the following:
Transfer applicants: Please check the transfer page for information about these programs.
We are still accepting freshman applications for all other majors.
During the week of January 21, we will begin to post admission decisions on eCampus. Please check your application status using the instructions that were sent to you in the mail. Students whose decisions have been posted will also receive their decisions in the mail (usually within a week). We expect to complete the review of all Early Action applications by the end of January.
Some students who applied Early Action will be asked to provide mid-year grades. Those students will receive an admission decision by the end of March.
If you have sent us your mid-year grades at our request (you will see this request by checking your status online using the instructions that were mailed to you when we received your application), please understand that it can take more than two weeks for us to place those mid-year grades in your application file. This is due to the very high volume of application materials arriving daily in our office. When we receive your grades, your application status will say “complete.” Your admission decision will be posted by the end of March, and a letter will be mailed to your home soon after the decision is available online. We appreciate your continued patience as we complete the careful review of each application.
Applications are reviewed when they become complete, although the process can take several weeks. Should we request additional information, such as mid-year grades, you can expect to receive an admission decision by the end of March. You should check the status of your application online to see if any requests are added to your "to do" list.
In mid January, we begin to mail acceptance packages on a daily basis. Acceptance letters include detailed information on merit-based scholarships. If you apply by the December 1, 2012, Early Action Deadline it is particularly important for you check your status online to see if your application remains complete. If you apply by the regular admission deadline of February 1, 2013, you can expect to receive a decision by the end of March, unless additional information is required to review your application.
Yes. URI takes the single highest score from each section of the SAT and the ACT (across all test dates) and calculate the highest total for the student.
We recommend that you send us all of your SAT scores, because we will take your highest score for each section from different test dates. If you elect to use “Score Choice,” your November scores may not reach us by the Early Action deadline (December 1).
Due to the large number of applications we receive for a limited number of spaces, admission to URI’s College of Pharmacy is highly selective. The Admission Office received more than 1,100 applications for the fall of 2011 for just 100 seats in the entering Pharm.D. class. The average SAT score (combined Critical Reading and Math) of students offered admission was a 1330, the average ACT score was a 30 (composite score), and the average high school grade point average (computed at the completion of the junior year) was a 4.1 on a weighted scale of a 4.0.
The Admission Office carefully evaluates each candidate’s strength in the following areas:
We strongly encourage Pharmacy applicants to submit all of their application materials by the December 1, 2012, Early Action deadline.
