W.Va. agency tells pharmacy school  to start over

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Higher Education Policy Commission has withdrawn its preliminary approval for a private pharmacy school.

The commission decided Friday that Tri-State Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences needs to go back to the drawing board. Among other things, it said the school must renovate its Huntington facility and seek accreditation.

West Virginia Public Broadcasting reports that Tri-State Pharmacy School is one of two that’s been in development.

Marshall University plans to open its school in fall 2012 despite objections from West Virginia University and the University of Charleston.
