The University of Michigan- Flint is a developing PA Program. We will begin our first class in January, 2021. Please note the following statement from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA)
The University of Michigan-Flint (UM-Flint) Master of Science, Physician Assistant (PA) Program has applied for Accreditation - Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). UM-Flint anticipates matriculating its first class in January 2021, pending achieving Accreditation - Provisional status at the September 2020 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 appears 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.
Applicants will not receive admission decisions until successful provisional accreditation is granted. Program applicants will be notified as soon as the Program is informed of accreditation process results. In the event that the program does not achieve provisional accreditation, UM-Flint Graduate Application fees will not be refunded.
