* Cost of Attendance amounts were developed to establish maximum financial aid allowances for typical students. Students are highly encouraged to establish a budget, reduce expenditures, and borrow via student loans in incremental amounts to help limit their educational debt.

** Includes program-related expenses associated with maintaining a functional laptop computer and obtaining necessary criminal background checks and drug screenings required for enrollment and completion of supervised clinical practice experiences.

Financial Aid

Many HPU PA students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to apply for student loans to support their graduate education (School Code 002933). Information about these loans is available in the Office of Student Financial Planning. If you have specific questions, contact either the Director of Financial Aid, Ron Elmore, by phone at (336) 841-9386 or by email at, or Assistant Director of Financial Aid, Sandra Norris, by phone at (336) 841-9032 or by e-mail at


Payment of all tuition and fees is due at the beginning of each term of enrollment.

Application Fee

For each application cycle prospective candidates must pay or obtain a waiver for the CASPA application fee and the program designation fee. These fees and policies regarding payment and refund are set by CASPA. Additional information is available on their website.

Enrollment Deposit

All applicants accepted into the program will be charged a $1000 nonrefundable deposit to hold their seat. This money will be applied toward their first semester comprehensive fee upon matriculation.

Refund Policy

Any refund, regardless of reason, is contingent upon students officially withdrawing from the University according to policies.

    • 100% Refund of Tuition (less non-refundable fees) if the student withdraws before the end (Friday close of business) of the second week of the semester.

    Non-refundable fees include: Technology fee ($160 per semester), Graduate Student Association fee ($5 per semester), Parking fee ($57.50 per semester), and Graduation Fee ($85). [Figures based on the 2014-15 fee schedule.]

    • No refunds of tuition are provided after the second week of the semester.
    • No refund will be made for student insurance or miscellaneous charges such as parking tickets, library fines, or student life violations.
    • Any refund is contingent on a student officially withdrawing from the University. To officially withdraw from the University, a student must report to the Norcross Graduate School Office. Students wishing to withdraw should also consult with the Office of Student Financial Planning to determine if stipulations associated with the financial aid package will lead to changes in the financial statement.
    • Dismissal or Expulsion from the University: In the event that students are excluded from University facilities and in cases of dismissal or expulsion, any tuition or fees due or paid will not be cancelled or refunded, in whole or in part.

ARC-PA Accreditation

The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the High Point University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by High Point University.

Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding Accreditation-Provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.

Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.
