Accreditation for the PA Program
Presbyterian College has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Presbyterian College anticipates matriculating its first class in October 2019, pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the June 2019 ARC-PA meeting. 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.
In the event that ARC-PA withholds accreditation, the Presbyterian College PA Program will not admit students in October 2019. The College will provide a refund to those individuals accepted to the program who paid their program deposit. CASPA application fees cannot be refunded to applicants by Presbyterian College or by CASPA.
