Admissions Cycle

The 2020-2021 admissions cycle began on April 30, 2020 and will run through November 1, 2020 at 9:00 p.m. PST (12:00 a.m. EST).  Applications received after this time will be considered late. Priority deadline is September 1, 2020.  Unlike other schools, we don’t participate in rolling admissions, so meeting annual applications deadlines is critical. 

If you wish to apply for the 40 seats available in this session, you should begin the process immediately, via CASPA (the Centralized Application Service for Physician Assistants). Or visit How to Apply to learn more. Please note that we do not require GRE results but TOEFL scores might be required in certain circumstances.
