New England Pharmacy School

Accreditation Process

The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) Board of Directors reviewed the Doctor of Pharmacy program of the Western New England University College of Pharmacy for purposes of advancing the program from Candidate status to Accredited status at its June 25-27, 2015, meeting. This review was based upon due consideration of the Evaluation Team Report dated April 7-9, 2015, the College’s self-study, and other communications received from the institution. Following discussion of the program, it was the decision of the Board that Accredited Status be granted to the Doctor of Pharmacy program. The accreditation term granted for the Doctor of Pharmacy program extends until June 30, 2017, which is the customary two-year term for a new program receiving Accredited status.
