ACICS Show-Cause Status: Fife Only

Notice to students and prospective students: The Certificate in Pharmacy Technician program at Charter College, Fife, has been placed on student achievement show-cause by their accreditor, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (“ACICS”), due to material noncompliance with its licensure pass rate standard of 60%.

The licensure pass rate reported in the 2015-2016 Campus Accountability Report (CAR) is available here under “Retention, Placement, and Licensure Rates”. The rate reported in the 2015-2016 CAR was, as defined by ACICS, “based on licensure pass rate published by the licensing agency”. That report is published by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (“PTCB”); the report showed a pass rate of 41% which was reported to ACICS and led to the program-level show cause. The PTCB report is specific to certification-attempters who tested at the campus, which may include non-Charter College students, and is not necessarily reflective of the completers and graduates during the 2015-2016 reporting period.

It is important to note that ACICS has since modified its definition of the licensure pass rate to include “…a self-generated report identifying the licensure status of every completer or graduate [during the reporting period]”.  Applying this definition to the 2015-2016 reporting period, the College has, and can support with evidence, a licensure pass rate of 100%. The College is prepared to submit this evidence to ACICS for the 2015-2016 reporting period, along with a mid-year licensure pass rate of 100% for 2016-2017. The College stands firmly behind the curriculum of the program and our graduate’s ability to complete the program, successfully attempt the certification exam, and seek employment in the field.
