Applicants for the M.S. programs in Cytotechnology/Molecular Cytology or Clinical Laboratory Sciences are directed to apply through the Allied Health Centralized Application Service (AHCAS). The deadline to apply is April 15 for international students and June 15 for U.S./domestic students.

Applicants for the M.S. programs in Health Outcomes Research, Molecular Biosciences, or Pharmaceutical Sciences are directed to apply through PharmCAS. The deadline to apply is March 2.

*** PLEASE NOTE that the M.S. program in Pharmaceutical Sciences is a two-year, research-oriented graduate degree program and does not lead to professional licensure as a pharmacist.
