Complaints about Accreditation Standards or College Policies and Procedures

A student who has a concern regarding an ACPE accreditation standard may make a formal complaint.  The ACPE recommends that the student submit the complaint to the SCP Senior Associate Dean for review and determination by the SCP administration.  The decision will be transmitted to the student in writing.  If the student thinks that he/she did not receive due process, then the student may contact the ACPE.  In addition, if the student perceives a serious problem with a standard, then he/she may bypass the SCP Senior Associate Dean and contact the ACPE directly. The student fills out the complaint form at the bottom of the Complaints page, which may be found at this URL: https://www.acpe-accredit.org/complaints/.

 

Disclosure – PharmD Graduates and Licensure

  1. To practice pharmacy, a person who graduates with a PharmD degree must also pass pharmacy licensing board examinations of the state(s) in which they want to practice and become a registered pharmacist.
  2. All pharmacy licensure boards recognize the Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from an Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education (ACPE) accredited College of Pharmacy as fulfilling the academic requirements for pharmacist licensure. The ACPE maintains national accreditation standards for Colleges of Pharmacy.   The University of North Texas System College of Pharmacy is an ACPE accredited College of Pharmacy.
  3. All pharmacy licensure boards recognize the North American Pharmacy Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) as a standardized licensure exam for pharmacist licensure.  Additionally, each state may have different licensure requirements including a state specific pharmacy law exam (refer to each state’s board of pharmacy website for state specific information).  Forty-nine pharmacy licensure boards require passing the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE) as component of licensure.  Arkansas, California, Idaho, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not utilize the MPJE for their law examination.
