The 2014-2015 Admissions Cycle opened on May 1, 2014, with all materials due on November 1, 2014. Once the admissions cycle is opened no changes can be made to the requirements.



All application materials must be received by the deadline. The program will not review applications that are incomplete, received after the deadline, or do not meet the minimum requirements.

The application cycle begins annually on May 1, and those who meet the minimum requirements can apply by completing the following three-step process:
  1. Apply through the Centralized Application Service of Physician Assistants (CASPA) at http://www.caspaonline.org. Official transcripts are considered part of the CASPA application must be sent directly to them. The CASPA application must be e-submitted, completed and verified by November 1.

  2. Three (3) letters of recommendation are required, one of which must be from a Medical Doctor (MD), Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), or Physician Assistant (PA), and are considered part of the CASPA application and must be submitted through CASPA. Please do not submit additional recommendations to our office.

  3. Mail the completed Supplemental Application and Application Payment Form, found in the Application Guide, along with a check or money order for the non-refundable fee of $110.00.

  4. Submit Graduate Record Examination Score directly and electronically to USA, Institution Code 1880. For details, visit www.ets.org. Applicants can self-report unofficial scores on their CASPA application, but this does not replace official score reports.

If an international student, the applicant must also:
  • take all prerequisites in the U. S. to establish a USA GPA.
  • have international degree evaluated by the USA Office of International Services to verify that it meets the USA equivalency.
  • have all international coursework and degrees evaluated by World Education Services for submission with CASPA application.
  • apply by October 1 to the Office of International Services: USA International Services.
If a U. S. student with international coursework, the applicant should consult CASPA instructions for clarification on evaluations and submission: CASPA Instructions and FAQs

It is the applicant’s responsibility to monitor the delivery of all materials to the USA PA program office and to CASPA.  For convenience, CASPA now offers a smartphone app for monitoring your application. See the CASPA online portal at https://portal.caspaonline.org/.
