PA COVID-19 Policy

Prerequisite Courses:

If your undergraduate institution has required students to go to Pass/Fail coursework, we will accept this. We do suggest that if this is optional, you do your best to take the Physician Assistant program prerequisites for a letter grade. We also suggest that if you must take a Pass/Fail in a prerequisite course, that you try to take an additional upper-level science course this fall to demonstrate additional competency in the subject area.

In the wake of the current situation, we realize that some of your prerequisites for this spring 2020 semester may not have allowed you to complete the lab component. We will certainly still give this full consideration and will be as flexible as possible. This will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


We know that there have been many test cancellations that have been rescheduled but even these dates are currently tentative. Please do not delay submitting your CASPA application due to lack of GREs. These scores can be submitted to complete the application when they become available. We will keep an eye on the situation closely but as of right now, the GRE is still required. For more information about the possibility to take the GREs at home and test postponements/rescheduling visit: https://www.ets.org/s/cv/gre/the-americas/
