Questions About Admission or Applications

No. However, any additional coursework not completed at Pacific must be submitted through official transcripts.

What are the GRE and TOEFL codes for programs at Pacific?TOP
Please see our Graduate Admission Requirements page for test codes for all application systems.

I need help paying for graduate school. Are there any graduate teaching or research assistantship opportunities? Can I still get financial aid?TOP
University of the Pacific provides financial assistance to selected graduate degree students in the form of financial aid. Restrictions apply; for details, please contact the program director of your designated program for further details on graduate assistantships or other forms of financial aid. To receive a graduate, teaching, or research assistantship, a student must apply. Awards are given on the basis of established degree program criteria and are contingent upon adequate financial resources from the degree program.

I'm an international student. Are there additional application requirements? When do I have to turn my materials in? Can I be conditionally admitted?TOP
Yes, there are additional requirements. International applicants must submit a complete application packet six (6) weeks prior to posted deadlines. University of the Pacific does not offer conditional admission to international students. All official documents must be submitted for admission review.

When will I hear back about the admission decision?TOP
Admissions decisions are expected six (6) weeks after a complete application portfolio has been submitted. Applications complete less than six (6) weeks prior to the desired term cannot be guaranteed admission. Admission deadlines vary by program.

Can I change the term I am applying for?TOP
Applicants may submit a written request via email to change their application term for up to one (1) year before being required to submit a new application.

Where do I turn in the DPT supplemental application and check?TOP
In addition to the PTCAS application, a supplemental application is required by the University of the Pacific. The supplemental application must be uploaded to the application, and a check or money order made payable to "University of the Pacific" for the $50 supplemental application fee.  You may find the supplemental application on the DPT program page.

I'm applying to PharmD blended program. Do I need to submit two (2) applications?TOP
Yes, there are separate applications for each program.

Why do I have a hold on my account for missing my Bachelor's degree posting?TOP
Although we have received an official in progress transcript from your institution, we require an official transcript that shows final grades with proof of degree has been awarded. You must have a Bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited institution to enroll in a graduate program at University of the Pacific.

I'm an undergraduate student who wants to take a graduate level course. Is there any paperwork I need to fill out?TOP
Yes, you must first apply and be admitted to graduate school. Once admitted, you need to fill out the Graduate Credit as an Undergraduate form and take it to the Office of the Registrar. More information about Graduate Credit as an Undergraduate.

I'm only seeking a Credential. Do I need to complete an application for graduate school? Are the requirements any different?TOP
Yes, apply as a "Credential Only" student. The requirements are that of the Curriculum and Instruction Program.
