Applications are accepted from June 1 through December 1 for classes beginning the following May. We accept 25 students into a class. Up to seven seats can be filled via BS/MS Entry Programs. Acceptance decisions are made as early as mid-September and continue until the class is filled. You are encouraged to apply as early as possible before the class fills.

  • After we receive your completed CASPA application, you may be contacted to conduct a program interview.

Admissions Process

The most qualified applicants are offered interviews on the University of Saint Francis campus. If you are selected for an interview, you will be expected to provide a written plan to fulfill all entrance requirements that have not been completed to that point.

After the interview, the admissions committee will review all of your application data and materials, including evaluations from the interview. If you are accepted into the PA program, it may be without reservation, or it may be contingent upon completion of all entrance requirements.

After your interview, you will be notified within two weeks of the admissions committee’s decision. If accepted, your seat is reserved for two weeks.  To indicate your commitment to attend, you will submit a $500 nonrefundable tuition deposit within two weeks of your offer.  To ensure your on-going commitment, an additional $500 nonrefundable tuition deposit will be due one month later.  This process will continue on a rolling basis until 25 seats are filled. The admissions committee will then build a “wait list.” If you are offered a seat from your wait-list position, you will commit to your seat with nonrefundable tuition deposits with modified due dates.
