Accreditation Statement

*The College of Saint Elizabeth MS in Physician Assistant Program has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The CSE MS PA Program anticipates matriculating its first class in October 2019 (Fall B semester), pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the June 2019 ARC-PA meeting.

Accreditation – Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding accreditation-provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.
