The Marshall University School of Pharmacy has earned candidate accreditation status from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, the national accrediting body for schools of pharmacy in the United States, school officials announced July 2.

Candidate accreditation status is the second step of a three-step process that culminates with  graduation of the first class and adherence to all ACPE accreditation standards. The new status is based on a site visit made to the school in April.

The Marshall University Board of Governors voted unanimously in December 2009 to approve the awarding of the Doctor of Pharmacy degree. The first class was admitted in August 2012.

ACPE accredits Doctor of Pharmacy programs offered by colleges and schools of Pharmacy in the United States and selected non-U.S. sites.
