Accreditation Statement

The University of the Sciences MSPAS Physician Assistant Program (USPAP) has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The USPAP Program anticipates matriculating its first class in August 2020 (Fall semester), pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the March 2020 ARC-PA meeting.

In the event that the University of the Sciences PA Program is not granted accreditation-provisional status by the ARC-PA as a result of their March 2020 commission meeting, the university will not conduct any further interviews. In addition, 100% of all funds deposited to the University will be refunded to all students accepted to the program.

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.
