Accreditation Information

The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Michigan State University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Michigan State University.  

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. 

Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class. 

The program’s accreditation history can be viewed on the ARC-PA website at  

MSUCOM Department of PA Medicine will only admit less than or equal to the number of students that are approved by the ARC-PA. At no time will the program exceed the approved number of students by the ARC-PA.
