How to Apply

You Can't Put a Price on a Great Education. So We Don't Think it Should Cost You to Apply.

That's why we don't charge an application fee for first-year freshman students or transfer students. First year freshman students apply to Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) through the Common Application or the MCPHS Freshman Application. Transfer students, please click here for a link to your application.

The Admission Office reviews files on a "rolling basis" and will not make a decision about a particular student until all of his or her application materials are received. Feel free to call 617.732.2850 or email admissions@mcphs.edu with any questions you have about the application process.
