The Central Application Service for Physician Assistants (CASPA), which allows applicants to submit applications to PA programs, will be available in May 2014. All MEDEX applicants must submit a completed CASPA application on or before the final application deadline of October 1st to be considered in the current admissions cycle (Application Timeline).
CASPA will begin the application verification process once the application has been submitted and after receiving official transcripts and reference letters, this process can take up to five (5) weeks. MEDEX uses the date that the applicant submitted the final application when verifying whether the application deadline has been met. Once CASPA has completed their verification process, they will release the official, verified application to MEDEX electronically.
To review details about the CASPA application and to check the status of your CASPA application, visit the CASPA Website.
CASPA is a complex process designed to collect applicant information in one place allowing you, as the applicant, to apply to several schools using one application. To better understand this process, view the below video. When you are ready to begin your CASPA application please also read all application instructions provided by the CASPA application services.
If you have questions about the CASPA application, please contact CASPA directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
