While traditional PharmD programs take 4 years to complete, graduates of Sullivan's program will be able to enter the workforce a year earlier. The 3-year program with accelerated curriculum is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

Specific state requirements must also be met to obtain licensure. Pharmacy Technician graduates can also obtain certification after graduation to become Certified Pharmacy Technicians.
