Immunizations: Current immunizations are required as determined by the CDC recommendations for health care providers. All immunization costs are the responsibility of the student.

Background Check and Drug Screen: All students will be required to undergo a criminal background check (both state and federal) and drug screen prior to being accepted into the PA program and prior to beginning the clinical year. Please understand the findings of such a check could disqualify you from being accepted into the program. All background check costs are the responsibility of the student.


Advanced placement courses will qualify for meeting course requirements, but will not calculate into the required GPA. Each applicant is limited to two advanced placement courses.


Due to the variance in curricula among PA schools throughout the country, no student will be admitted as a transfer from another program.  There will be no advanced standing offered to any student; all applicants must meet all admission requirements and complete all coursework in the curriculum regardless of past academic background.


All international students should consult the University of Dayton international admissions office for complete details of requirements at If you have further questions and wish to speak with an individual, you may contact the Office of International Admission at 937-229-1850 or toll free at 855-664-5623.
