ADMISSIONS OVERVIEW

PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT PROGRAM - Pleasantville

Pace University recruits students domestically and internationally.  Included in our overall recruitment and program promotion are visits to and participation in fairs and programs at colleges, universities and agencies in the Lower Hudson Valley as well as external events and activities sponsored by veteran organizations.

Applications are carefully reviewed by the Admission Committee utilizing a holistic approach which considers qualitative and quantitative factors. To ensure that we are fulfilling the mission of the program, this multifaceted process includes the careful examination of academic credentials, a resume/vitae describing professional experience and service, a personal statement that discusses goals and aspirations as well as letters of reference.  Those individuals who we believe possess the quantitative and qualitative attributes that best align with our academic criteria and mission will be selected for an interview and final consideration for admission. 

All candidates will be required to apply through CASPA (Centralized Application Service for Physician Assistants).  Information provided will include cumulative undergraduate GPA, evidence of direct patient care hours and letters of recommendation. 

Please note that CASPA does not verify foreign language/international transcripts. These credentials should be evaluated and translated by a NACES accredited organization (www.naces.org) or an Education USA adviser www.educationusa.state.gov).  One official copy of the evaluation, in an envelope sealed by the evaluation organization, should be sent directly to CASPA and a second copy of the evaluation, also in an envelope sealed by the evaluation organization, should be sent to Pace University, Office of Graduate Admission, 861 Bedford Road, Pleasantville, NY 10570 by the December 15th deadline.

CASPA Application deadline: Application must be e-submitted and completed (all transcripts, payment and 2 of the 3 Letters of Recommendation received by CASPA) to be reviewed by the Program’s Admissions Committee. Applications will be reviewed on a space available basis until the class is filled.
