APhA Academy of Student Pharmacists



Chapter Achievement Awards Program


DESCRIPTION OF DIVISIONS, ELIGIBLITY, AND AWARDS



CAA Report Divisions

Chapters are divided into three divisions based on the previous year’s student pharmacist enrollment obtained from the American Association of College of Pharmacy (AACP). Divisions AAA (0 to 350 students), AA (351 to 550 students) and A (greater than 550 students) are determined each fall based on the full-time enrollment of PharmD (Doctor of Pharmacy degrees awarded as the first professional degree) student pharmacists. The divisions are reassessed on an annual basis by the APhA-ASP National Executive Committee and APhA Staff, and are subject to change from year to year. A list of the chapters and divisions can be found in Appendix J of this document and on the APhA-ASP Web site.
CAA Report Eligibility

Each chapter is eligible to win only one award with the exception of the Chapter Innovative Programming Award and the Outstanding IPSF Activity Award. Therefore, if a chapter wins a Divisional Award or the Chapter of the Year Award, that chapter is not eligible to win a Specialty CAA, except for the Chapter Innovative Programming Award or the Outstanding IPSF Activity Award. In addition, the Chapter of the Year Award, Most Improved Chapter Award, and the Specialty CAAs are given without regard to chapter division/size of school or college of pharmacy.
