We have financial aid programs to assist students who have financial needs. The Office of Financial Aid is prepared to supplement student contributions from its aid sources for qualified applicants. Counselors are available to assist students in obtaining financial aid from outside sources. It is very important that all financial planning arrangements are complete prior to entering the program.
Physician assistant students are advised that employment during the didactic phase of the program is highly discouraged and not allowed during the clinical phase due to the heavy academic demands of the program.
