GPA of <3.0 may be considered individually on a provisional basis
Graduate Record Examination (GRE) results

If you do not have a degree from a U.S. or Canadian institution, it is required that an outside professional evaluation of your higher education credentials be conducted. This evaluation must include an analysis of courses, grades and grade point average, and U.S. degree equivalency. Evaluations will be accepted from any reputable professional company. Three recommended credential evaluation companies are:
World Education Services (Highly recommended) - (request the Course by Course evaluation)
American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (request the Course by Course evaluation)
International Education Research Foundation (request the "Detail Report")
The admission deadline for completed applications is January 15. However, we in the Pharmaceutical Outcomes Research Track do discuss year-round admissions in special circumstances. If you have missed January 15 but are still interested in the Fall start, contact the Track Director Dr. Nair atKavita.Nair@ucdenver.edu.
Given that admission to the program is a very competitive, it is impossible to evaluate your qualifications for admission (test scores, grades) until the selection committee assesses the entire applicant pool. If you are selected for an interview, we will pay your travel expenses to and from campus. Admission to the program includes financial support via a monthly stipend. The initial process involves submitting an online application to the graduate school and can be initiated by following the link on the main page.
If you live outside of North America (regardless of your nationality), you are at a disadvantage because we do not have enough resources to cover international travel expenses and therefore it is unlikely that we will cover travel costs for an interview. Conducti ng an interview by phone is an option, but may put you at a disadvantage compared to other candidates.
