Accreditation

All pharmacy schools must report their accreditation status. The School of Pharmacy is pleased to report ours.

As one of the top pharmacy schools, our students pay attention to details like drug medication labels. In 2012, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) granted our Doctor of Pharmacy program eight-year accreditation status. That is the longest term permitted by ACPE that pharmacy schools or colleges can achieve.

Our Accreditation

You can access the policies and regulations that pertain to our and all pharmacy schools’ accreditation by visiting the ACPE website, calling 312-664-3575 or faxing them at 866-228-2631.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states. 

Outcomes

Top pharmacy schools prepare their graduates for success. Our formula for success is unique. We prepare our graduates to make a difference in the lives of their patients, their community and the profession.

Many pharmacy schools say they are the best. But can they prove it with specific data? We compile the statistics year-over-year to document how our pharmacy program compares with others.
