Admissions Guidelines and Information 

2016 AACP Admissions Workshop

Each year, AACP hosts an Admissions Workshop as a pre-session at the AACP Annual Meeting. Information about the 2016 Admissions Workshop can be accessed here.

Cooperative Admissions Guidelines Update Webinar 

In November 2015, the AACP Board of Directors reviewed the feedback on the proposed Cooperative Admissions Guidelines (CAG). The feedback from academic pharmacy was split in their opinion of the CAG. As such, AACP staff recommended that the AACP Board of Directors appoint a new task force with equal numbers of members who support and oppose the Cooperative Admissions Guidelines including 1-2 members of the Special Committee on Admissions who worked on the Cooperative Admissions Guidelines, 1-2 Board members, 1-2 CEO Deans and 1-2 admissions officers. The Board requested that the task force continue to work to gain member feedback before bringing any new CAG proposals back to the Board. 

The taskforce has worked to modify the CAG based on the feedback received and presented a webinar on the changes in a new draft CAG. Feedback will also be solicited via email for comment in writing from each program.
