Accreditation Process for the UNT System College of Pharmacy (SCP)
University of North Texas System’s Doctor of Pharmacy program has been authorized by the Board of Directors for an on-site evaluation to be scheduled during spring 2013 for consideration of Precandidate accreditation status. Authorization of an on-site evaluation for consideration of Precandidate accreditation 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 accreditation status at the next regularly scheduled meeting, which occur in January and June of each year, following the on-site evaluation. For an explanation of the ACPE accreditation process, consult the Office of the Dean or the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 135 South LaSalle Street, Suite 4100, Chicago, Illinois 60503, 312-644-3575; FAX 312-664-4652; website www.acpe-accredit.org.
Granting of Precandidate accreditation status brings no rights or privileges of accreditation as associated with either candidate status or fully accredited status. Precandidate accreditation 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 accreditation status. Since Precandidate accreditation 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 accreditation status do not meet the educational requirements for licensure.
