Application and Acceptance



You must complete an application through CASPA and the PA program application below to be accepted into our program. CASPA will begin accepting applications in April of each year. You must complete your CASPA application by September 1 of the year prior to matriculation. All materials should be received by our program on or before October 1 of the year prior to matriculation. If your application is received after October 1, your application may not be reviewed. 






Acceptance into our program is very competitive. Selected applicants will be interviewed by the admissions committee/faculty. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance within two weeks of the interview date.

Applicants offered a seat in the next matriculating class are expected to acknowledge acceptance within two weeks of notification and forward a signed acceptance letter and a non-refundable acceptance deposit of $1000 (which will be applied toward tuition) to hold a seat in the class. Exceptions are considered on an individual basis. All others are placed on an alternate list unless interview deems them unqualified for potential placement in our program.
A new student packet will be mailed to your home for your review and completion and must be returned to the Program by the date specified in the packet.
