Our Doctor of Pharmacy program has been Approved for Consideration for Precandidate status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, which allows us to accept applications and admit students.
Chapman University’s School of Pharmacy program has been authorized by the Board of Directors for an on-site evaluation to be scheduled during fall 2014 for consideration of Precandidate status. Authorization of an on-site evaluation for consideration of Precandidate status does not carry with it nor imply an accreditation status. The on-site evaluation is authorized solely for purposes of gathering additional information in furtherance of an accreditation decision. The Board will consider Precandidate status at the next regularly scheduled meeting, which occur in January and June of each year, following the on-site evaluation.
