About

Overview

The Physician Assistant Studies program at Grand Valley State University is using CASPA (Central Application Service for Physician Assistants) for the upcoming application cycle!  CASPA is a service of the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) and has been established since 2001.  The CASPA application process is designed to simplify the PA school application process by allowing students to apply to several programs with only one application.  Currently 95% of accredited PA programs across the country use CASPA to process applications.

Graduates of the PAS program are eligible to take the National Certification Commission on Physician Assistants’ (NCCPA) Physician Assistant National Certification Exam (PANCE), and may apply for licensure in any of the 50 states, District of Columbia, and U.S. Territories.
