PA Undergraduate Admissions

  • BS to MPAS Option

    Students may enter the MPAS Program directly from high school; without prior college work or medical experience. Applicants must meet general College admission requirements as published in the College catalog. The priority date for applications is December 1st for the Fall term. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible for consideration.

    A competitive evaluation process is used, with admission based on factors such as: SAT scores, high school quintile ranking and high school GPA. Students with a SAT composite above 1100, at least a second quintile ranking, and a high school GPA of 3.5 or better would be competitive in the applicant pool. Items in the applicant's file that demonstrate maturity, academic honesty, commitment to a career in health care and concern for others would also strengthen the case for admission.
