THE CENTRAL APPLICATION SERVICE FOR PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS-CASPA
Applicants must register with CASPA and create a profile before applying to programs of their choice. Please visit CASPA's website for instructions on how to get started with your PA Program application.
Academic Update: CASPA applicants can update "planned" or "in-progress" coursework on their application after verification through a process called Academic Update. This allows you to change coursework to "complete" and self-report the grades received for these courses. This coursework is not verified, calculated into GPAs, and CASPA does not accept updated transcripts.
*Applicants will not have access to edit their coursework that was not listed as "planned" or "in-progress".
*Applicants who wish to add supporting documents to their locked application must send your request to the PA Admissions email: firstname.lastname@example.org . The subject line must read LOCKED APPLICATION. All supporting documentation with the exception of transcripts must be attached to the email. To prove a course is in progress or will be in progress, official transcript must be mailed to the PA program office:
CCNY/Physician Assistant Program
160 Convent Avenue
New York, NY 10031

If you are offered a seat in the program, you will be required to submit official transcripts directly to the PA Program prior to matriculation.
