International Applicants

International students are welcome to apply as long as they have met the minimum admissions requirements, including an earned bachelor’s degree from a U.S. regionally accredited college or university.

International applicants who are offered an interview should be prepared to travel to campus. International applicants are responsible for their own student visa fees and paperwork, and should note that there is no funding, such as US federal financial aid, available for international applicants. HPU requires additional documentation from international applicants to assess their immigration/citizenship status and ability to support themselves financially for the duration of the PA program.

In addition to the standard application process, international applicants are required to submit the application materials listed below directly to the Norcross Graduate School by the October 1 application deadline:

  1. Copy of Visa or Permanent Resident Card
  2. International Graduate Student Profile Form
  3. Certificate of Financial Support

Immigration Information
Information concerning United States immigration can be obtained by contacting Jenna Antignano, Coordinator of Graduate Admissions, 336.841.9487. High Point University will issue the form I-20 only after the student is officially accepted and only after a nonrefundable matriculation deposit has been received. Under no circumstance should a student enter the United States with the intent to register at High Point University unless both a current I-20 and a current student visa are in hand.

International students are required to maintain full-time status.

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.
