The Physician Assistant program at Marshall University has applied for Accreditation - Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Marshall University anticipates matriculating its first class in January of 2021, pending achieving Accreditation - Provisional status at the June 2020 meeting of ARC-PA.

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. The Marshall University Physician Assistant program will not commence in the event provisional accreditation is not received.
