Graduate Admission Requirements

The Bay Path University Physician Assistant Program is a participating member of the Centralized Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA). All applications must be submitted online, directly to CASPA. Our CASPA admissions cycle begins in mid-April each year with a deadline of October 1st. The CASPA application must be verified by October 1st. 

Applicants are required to complete and submit a supplemental application. The supplemental application fee is $60. The deadline for completing the supplemental application is also October 1st. Click here to download the supplemental application.

Applications are reviewed by the Physician Assistant Program Admissions Committee, who evaluate the overall qualities of the candidate. Qualified applicants are offered an on-campus interview to assess interpersonal and communication skills, maturity, and commitment to a career as a PA. The interview session also provides candidates an opportunity to tour the University's facilities, to meet Program faculty and staff, and to talk with current students of the program. Interviews will be conducted in November yearly.

Students offered acceptance will be notified by mid December. Candidates who are not offered admission after the interview MAY be placed on a wait list. Offers of acceptance are extended to candidates on the wait list if a candidate from the accepted class list withdraws from the program prior to matriculation. Once an offer of acceptance is made by the program, the applicant will have a designated amount of time to accept or decline the offer. An acceptance must be accompanied by a non-refundable $500 tuition deposit in order to hold the applicant's place in the class.
