We strive for clear, straightforward and attainable minimum admission requirements for prospective applicants. New PA students enter the program annually in May (summer semester).

To apply to start on May 4, 2020, the application cycle opens April 26, 2019 and closes on September 1, 2019. For an application to be considered, the program requires a completed CASPA application and an EMU graduate application by our deadline (see admissions process). 

The requirements listed are the minimum requirements for an application to be reviewed and evaluated by the EMU PA program. All of the admissions requirements must be met in order for an applicant to have a chance at being admitted. Simply meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee progression to the interview stage of the admissions process.
