Professional Fridays offer unique experiences for students within the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy (SUCOP). Professional Fridays are considered part of a student's academic workweek (5 days per week). This includes professional activities, service learning, and professional electives, which will run longitudinally through a student's first and second professional years. Students are not expected to participate in Professional Fridays while they are on their Intermediate Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) or Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) as these activities require attendance at a practice site 5 days per week unless instructed otherwise by the site coordinator or Director of Experiential Education.

 It should be noted that the College of Pharmacy Attendance Policy will be enforced for Professional Friday activities.

Further, it should be noted that any activity for which a student receives monetary compensation (i.e. working) will not count as a Professional Friday activity.
