Admission Requirements & Deadlines

The application deadline is September 1st for the class that will matriculate the following June. The most successful applicants are those individuals who apply to CASPA as early as possible in the application cycle, have competitive GPAs as well as grades in science courses, and strong clinical experience in patient care.

The program uses a rolling admissions process, whereby eligible and competitive candidates are reviewed in order of submission, and upon a successful interview are offered admission into the program. Candidates are reviewed only after submitting all application requirements.  Due to our rolling admissions process, once all of the seats in the program are filled, additional applications may not be reviewed.

For a more detailed review of application and admission requirement information, please see the Physician Assistant Program Application and Admissions Information Booklet (PDF).
