About the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

NAPLEX and MPJE Results

Our Grads Prove to Be Some of the Best in the Nation

When you’ve invested years and hundreds of thousands of dollars into a pharmacy degree, you want to know that you’ll be able to practice. At CU’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy, we’re proud to announce that for six years in a row, our graduates have surpassed the national pass rate for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) and the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE).

Components of the licensure process, both exams are used by the boards of pharmacy as part of their assessment of a candidate’s competence to practice as a pharmacist. PharmD graduates traditionally take the exam within six months of graduation. The following is a snapshot of how our students have performed.
