Application Services

Application Services


Some health professions schools require secondary applications to be completed in addition to the primary application. Applications are not considered complete until the secondary application is submitted. Most secondary applications require an additional fee and the majority of secondary application fees are non-refundable. Please check and confirm the cost with the school as costs range from $25-$60.  

Letters of Reference

Letters of reference are key pieces to your Physician Assistant program application. Each application has its own way of collecting letters and number and type of letters vary from school to school. Check with the application service you are using for additional details. If you are applying to multiple Physician Assistant programs check with each program to see what letters they want or need.

Personal Statements

The personal statement is a critical component of your application to PA school, as the personal statement can either significantly help or harm your chances for success, it is important to take it seriously. The statement must be personal. This is your chance to let the Admissions Committee hear from you and understand who you are. Take advantage of the opportunity to express your commitments, motivations and values
