ADMISSIONS OVERVIEW - pa plv

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 focuses on academic credentials as well as prior experience, service history, goals and aspirations.  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 must have a completed baccalaureate from a United States or Canadian accredited institution of higher learning.

All candidates will be required to apply through CASPA (Centralized Application Service for Physician Assistants).  

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 January 15, 2019 deadline.

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis as the admission process progresses through the year. Applications will not be considered and interviews will not be granted until prerequisites have been completed and a baccalaureate completed by June 2019. Prerequisites must be completed by January 1, 2019.
