Student Pharmacist Registration Process

In 2018, we will have a maximum of 325 student pharmacist seats within the program. This allows us to have 75 seats for pharmacists, faculty members, administrators, state pharmacist recovery network personnel and state board of pharmacy representatives. Therefore, in an effort to remain fair to all of the schools and colleges of pharmacy, and to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to send a representative to the APhA Institute on Alcoholism and Drug Dependencies, we have detailed the following procedures for registering student pharmacists:

By January 22nd

APhA‐ASP Chapters, faculty, and administrators promote the APhA Institute on Alcoholism and Drug Dependencies to interested student pharmacists. This would include promotion of the annual scholarship, ambassador program, and should inform the students that the registration fee will have to be paid in full at the time of submission of the application.

Chapter advisors and leaders, working in collaboration with student services, and interested faculty members and administrators, compile a ranked list of student pharmacists that are highly interested in attending the school. Disclosure of fees associated with registration, housing, meals, airfare, ground transportation, and incidentals should be discussed and agreed upon by all students interested in attending the APhA Institute.

Please note that each school or college of pharmacy, regardless of the number of multiple/satellite campuses will only be able to submit one ranked list for the entire school or college of pharmacy. Submissions will not be accepted from multiple/satellite campuses.

January 22nd to February 12th

The APhA‐ASP Chapter Advisor (or school of pharmacy designee) completes the online pre‐registration form for the ranked list of student pharmacists. The online form will request the name and email address of each student pharmacist. APhA is not responsible for incorrect email addresses. The online registration form will be open on Monday, January 22, 2018 and will close on Monday, February 12, 2018 at 11:59pm PT.

By February 19th

APhA will develop a pre‐registration list and a wait list of student pharmacists. The pre‐registration list will provide an opportunity to have at least 2 student representatives from each of the schools and colleges of pharmacy attend the meeting. The order of the students on the wait list will be determined by the submission date of the online registration form.

Student pharmacists on the pre‐registration list will receive an email from APhA stating that they have been accepted to attend the APhA Institute on Alcoholism and Drug Dependencies by Monday, February 19, 2018.

By March 2nd

Students on the pre‐registration list need to complete the official online registration form and submit full payment to APhA by the deadline of Friday, March 2, 2018 at 11:59pm PT. Failure to complete and submit the online registration form and payment will result in the loss of the student’s seat at the school.

By March 9th

Student pharmacists on the wait list will be notified of any available open seats within the APhA Institute. Student pharmacist online registration for the APhA Institute on Alcoholism and Drug Dependencies will not be accepted outside this process, nor will student pharmacist registration forms be accepted prior to the above enrollment period.

School or College of Pharmacy / Chapter Selection Process

APhA realizes that each school may have their own process for sending students to the APhA Institute. Whether is it an application, an essay, history of substance abuse, or need, we respect each school’s autonomy in creating a process that works best for your students. Mentoring and counseling have become increasingly important over the past few years at the Institute. Therefore, APhA highly encourages that schools and colleges of pharmacy send a faculty member or a member of the student services office with their student pharmacists. 

Please note that Student Ambassadors, APhA-ASP Student Leaders, APhA-ASP Generation Rx Award Winners, and APhA Foundation Scholarship recipients do not count against your Chapter's number of student pharmacists in the pre-registration process. We have already allotted room for these individuals.
