The High Point University PA program anticipates participation in the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA) beginning on April 17, 2014. Pending successful accreditation-provisional approval the founding Class of 2017 will begin studies in June of 2015. All applicants applying for the Founding Class of 2017 (entering June 2015) will apply online using the CASPA application. PA Specific GRE code is 7291. This code only applies to those applying through CASPA.

The High Point University Physician Assistant Studies Program has applied for provisional accreditation from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Pending provisional accreditation in September 2014, HPU anticipates commencing the PA program in June 2015. Provisional accreditation is an accreditation status for a new PA program that has not yet enrolled students, but at the time of its comprehensive accreditation review, has demonstrated its preparedness to initiate a program in accordance with the accreditation Standards.
