Note: (1) Survey courses do not meet the prerequisite requirements (usually a 100 or 101 class). (2) Applicants may be “conditionally” accepted with up to two prerequisites pending; however, all the coursework must be completed by the end of the summer semester before the matriculation date. (3) The PA program does not accept transfer credit from other PA programs. (4) All degree and prerequisite requirements must come from a US regionally accredited institution.
Under no circumstances will applicants be allowed to begin the Physician Assistant Studies Program if the required courses or bachelor's degree are not completed by the end of the summer semester prior to the program start date.
