ACPE Accreditation
Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education

American University of Health Sciences School of Pharmacy’s Doctor of Pharmacy program has been granted Precandidate status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 190 South LaSalle Street, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60603, 312-644-3575; FAX 866-228-2631,

Precandidate Status
Granting of Precandidate status brings no rights or privileges of accreditation as associated with either candidate status or accredited status. Precandidate status indicates only that planning has taken into account ACPE standards and guidelines and suggests reasonable assurance of moving to the next step, that of Candidate status. Since Precandidate status does not create any rights of accreditation under the ACPE standards, it is the opinion of ACPE that graduates of programs of Colleges or Schools of Pharmacy that bear Precandidate status do not meet the educational requirements for licensure.

CHEA
Council For Higher Education Accreditation

The WASC Senior College and University Commission is a recognized member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. CHEA is a private, non-profit, national organization that coordinates accreditation activity in the United States. It carries forward a deep-seated belief that recognition of accrediting organizations should be a key strategy to ensure quality, accountability and improvement in higher education.
