The ATSU Central Coast Physician Assistant (CCPA) program has applied for Accreditation - Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). CCPA anticipates matriculating its first class in October 2021, pending achieving Accreditation - Provisional status at the June 2021 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.

If provisional-accreditation is not granted, program admissions will be delayed until accreditation is received. Prospective students will be notified as soon as we are informed of accreditation results. Should the program not receive provisional-accreditation, all deposits will be returned to candidates. Information on accreditation is available at the ARC-PA website.
