Le Moyne College’s Physician Assistant (PA) Studies program is committed to the education of PA students who are clinically competent, community-inclusive and compassionate critical thinkers.
The admission process is competitive and candidates are highly encouraged to attend a virtual information session if they are considering an application.
In the spirit of the Jesuit tradition, Le Moyne looks to enroll a diverse class of learners from various backgrounds with an expressed desire to serve rural or medically underserved communities.
Le Moyne offers a Direct-Entry Program to high school seniors entering the college environment for the first time and a Veteran - Physician Assistant Bridge pathway for students who identify as having former military service.
Applications for fall 2024 entry are now open and live through CASPA.
Le Moyne participates in the Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA) and all applicants must apply through this system. All admission documents will be sent directly to CASPA per the application instructions.
For consideration, candidates must have their records submitted and verified by October 1st of their application year.
Please note the verification process may take time for CASPA to complete, so you are encouraged to apply early to ensure your records can be reviewed by the College by this date.
There is no supplemental application or supplemental fee required for our program.

Foreign transcripts need to be evaluated by an appropriate evaluating service and submitted to the CASPA application for consideration. Le Moyne recommends the use of a NACES accredited evaluating service and CASPA provides recommendations here.
A Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score report is required of non-native English speaking applicants. A score of at least 79 is required on the TOEFL or at least 6.5 on the IELTS.
The TOEFL or IELTS will be waived for international students with:
Certificate of Finance
In order to qualify for the Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20), students must be admitted into the program full time and provide proof of sufficient funding for at least the first year of graduate study.
To do so, students invited to interview need to complete the Le Moyne College Certificate of Finance. The Certificate of Finance can be sent directly to Le Moyne at [email protected].
It is recommended that students complete this form upon being invited to interview.
Competitive applicants will have no more than two outstanding prerequisite courses (including courses in progress) at the time of application.
A planning worksheet with detailed course recommendations can be found here, or by clicking the image below:
Required prerequisites include:
At least 750 hours of quality direct patient contact experience are required to begin the PA program. Competitive applicants will have this amount (or very close to it) when they apply.
The quality of the experience(s) and number of hours are weighed when considering an application. The more “hands-on” activities are considered higher quality and the less “hands-on” activities are considered lower quality but are still important to include on your application.
Patient contact hours may be paid or volunteer. It is extremely important to provide a detailed description of your responsibilities on your CASPA application to assure that you are given appropriate credit. To assist you, we have compiled a Guide for Patient Care Experiences featuring many of the positions we often see. You can view/download our patient care guide online here or by clicking the image below:
This resource provides approximate quality values and is intended as a guide only and is not all-inclusive. Again, it is important to note that assigned values of patient experience are based on description of duties on the application.
Please reference our Frequently Asked Questions page for a variety of common inquiries.
