​Program Deadlines

The PA program will begin accepting new applications through the Centralized ​Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA) when the CASPA site opens for this upcoming admission cycle.

CASPA Application Deadline:
  • ​October 1 of the year prior to the anticipated Fall start date (e.g: applicants for the Fall 2024 must have their CASPA application in the “complete” status by October 1, 2023​).
  CASPA Application Deadline Definition:
  • Completed application
  • Applicants must have a complete application by the deadline date posted
  • A complete application requires that the application is e-submitted and all transcripts, payments and three letters of reference have been received by CASPA and attached to the application
  • Documents should be sent to CASPA several weeks prior to the deadline date ensuring all items arrive on time

Any application that is not verified and released to the program by CASPA by November 1 will not be processed, and the application will be rejected. This can be avoided by getting all documents required by CASPA to them in time to meet this deadline.

Note: If you were a paid and verified applicant for the previous application cycle, the CASPA website states that you are eligible to sign up and start with last year's data.

The PA program reserves the right to change these deadlines.
