Financial Aid

Information on financial aid, tuition, and related fees can be obtained through the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid (OAFA) at 412-624-7488. As a PharmD student, please keep in mind the following when completing financial aid forms:

  • Professional Year 1 (P1) and Professional Year 2 (P2) of the PharmD curriculum are considered undergraduate level for those that have not earned a Bachelors degree.  
  • Even though you are working towards your Doctorate of Pharmacy degree, the University does not recognize your status as a graduate. Therefore, you would answer questions pertaining to college level as third year or junior level. If a previous degree has been obtained, you would answer fifth year or working towards second undergraduate degree. DO NOT indicate that you are working towards a doctorate or in a graduate/professional school.
  • Professional Year 3 (P3) and Professional Year 4 (P4) are considered graduate level. Financial aid forms documenting that you are working towards a doctorate and/or graduate/professional degree will be acceptable at that time.
  • If you have earned a Bachlors degree,  the above does not apply.  Your college staus will be graduate and you would complete the question as working towards your doctorate.
