Securing Your Seat

Course registration opens in early May. Students must submit a $500 deposit by May 1 in order to register for classes. The $500 deposit will be applied to tuition and fees upon matriculation. The following payment options are available*:

  • Option 1 – Submit matriculation paperwork within two weeks of acceptance to hold seat, followed by $500 by May 1 in order to register
  • Option 2 – Submit matriculation paperwork and $250 within two weeks of acceptance to hold seat, followed by $250 by May 1 in order to register
  • Option 3 – Submit matriculation paperwork and $500 within two weeks of acceptance to hold seat and register in early May
    *Students will make selection on their matriculation paperwork.
    Early Decision candidates are exempt from paying the $500 deposit and will be able to register in early May.

Official Transcripts

All final, official transcripts from all previously attended institutions must be submitted directly to PharmCAS prior to the close of the application cycle on June 30, 2020. The transcripts must indicate that you have successfully completed all required pre-pharmacy coursework with a grade of C- or better. All required pre-pharmacy coursework must be successfully completed prior to the first day of classes. Additionally, if you have finished a bachelor's degree, the transcript must indicate the degree conferred date. 

If you are taking summer 2020 classes and/or fail to submit final, official transcripts to PharmCAS by the June 30, 2020 deadline, you must arrange for final, official transcripts to be sent directly to Concordia University Wisconsin School of Pharmacy.

If all official transcripts are not available by the deadline indicated above, the student should contact Tammy Biskobing, Office of Student Affairs Administrative Assistant, at tammy.biskobing@cuw.edu or 262-243-2755.
