Note: (1) Survey courses do not meet the prerequisite requirements (usually a 100 or 101 class). (2) Online coursework will not satisfy laboratory course requirements. (3) Applicants may be “conditionally” accepted with up to two prerequisites pending; however, all the coursework must be completed prior to matriculation. (4) The PA program does not award advanced placement or accept transfer credit from other programs. (5) All degree and prerequisite requirements must come from a US regionally accredited institution.
