UCSF

Application Processing Fee

This page describes details about the UCSF Application Processing Fee, as described in Admissions Step 2: The Application.

Note: In previous years, UCSF utilized a two-part application process: (1) the PharmCAS application; and (2) the UCSF Supplemental Application. Beginning with the current admissions cycle, we no longer require a separate UCSF Supplemental Application. Instead, UCSF-specific essays will now appear in the PharmCAS application when an applicant designates UCSF as a school to which they intend to apply. We do still require a UCSF Application Processing Fee. To learn more about this change, please visit our blog.
