The OHSU PA Program participates in the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA).
The application fee is based upon the number of programs to which an applicant applies. Please refer to CASPA for information on fees and waivers.
CASPA will begin accepting applications for 2013-14 admissions beginning April 17, 2013.
For questions about completing the online CASPA application, help can be reached by emailing CaspaInfo@caspaonline.org
Please send official transcripts directly to CASPA. Transcripts should only be sent to CASPA at this point; no need to also send them to OHSU. However, if you matriculate into the OHSU PA Program, official transcripts will be requested at that time. In the meantime, send official transcripts to CASPA at the following address:
PO Box 9108
Watertown, MA 02471
The application deadline for the entering class of 2014 is October 1, 2013. All materials must be received at CASPA on or before 10/1/13 to be considered for 2014 admissions.
Early applications are encouraged. The PA Program offers rolling admissions with interviews beginning in October and continuing through early January.
In addition to the CASPA application, the OHSU PA Program also requires submission of a supplemental application (available 5/1/2013). There is no charge for the supplemental.
The supplemental application must be received in the PA Program office on or before October 1, 2013 to be considered for 2014 admissions. No exceptions, so please plan ahead.
Graduate Record Exam
The GRE General Test is required for 2013-14 admissions. The official score report must be received at CASPA, identified with institution code 4780, on or before the 10/1/13 deadline to be considered for the entering class of 2014. Score reports for tests taken within the past 5 years are acceptable. Please refer to the GRE web page link on the right for additional information regarding the GRE. The PA Program's GRE institution code is 4780 and department code of 0634 or 0699 or 5199 (any department code will work as long as the institution code is correct).
After the Program has received the completed application from CASPA, including official GRE scores, and supplemental application, an initial file review will be conducted.
