Several new pharmacy schools have opened for the 2012 year, and plan on enrolling their first class of students soon: Manchester College School of Pharmacy (link here: http://www.manchester.edu/pharmacy/index.htm), Marshall University School of Pharmacy (link here: http://www.marshall.edu/wpmu/pharmacy/), Cedarville University School of Pharmacy (link here: http://www.cedarville.edu/Academics/Pharmacy.aspx, and Fairleigh Dickinson University Medco College of Pharmacy(link here: http://www.fdu.edu/academic/pharmacy/). New pharmacy schools have to go through the accreditation processes with the accreditation council for pharmacy education (ACPE). The opening of new pharmacy schools as well as current pharmacy schools do not guarantee that they will be accredited or maintain their accreditation by the ACPE, but only that they are in varying stages of seeking or maintaining their accreditation. Therefore, candidates should apply and enroll at their own risk. It is wise to check with each of the pharmacy schools and the ACPE for accreditation updates and information before beginning the application process.
