Graduate Admission (Pathway 2)

If you are an applicant that will have a degree by the time of matriculation, you will submit an application through the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA) for the traditional application process. The CASPA cycle for the January 2025 will begin in late April 2024, and the application deadline is August 1, 2024 with a “complete” status.

The admissions process is a two-step process. The first step is an academic evaluation using the CASPA application. The applicant's overall and prerequisite GPA are evaluated. Personal statements, exposure to and understanding of the physician assistant profession, campus involvement, commitment to learning, history of leadership, letters of recommendation, and strong writing and interpersonal skills may also be taken into consideration by the selection committee. The top candidates are then invited for an interview on campus. The UEPA program uses the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) process. Candidates are then re-ranked and selected for admission.

Interviews are expected to be in September prior to year of matriculation with offers of admission made within two weeks of the interview. Those eligible applicants not offered admission will be placed on a waitlist.

Upon an offer of admission, candidates will be required to submit a $1,000 non-refundable seat deposit. This deposit will be applied toward tuition upon matriculation.

At least 50 percent of the matriculating class will be selected through this admission pathway.

The University of Evansville Physician Assistant Program does not recognize any special populations.
