The Alderson Broaddus University Physician Assistant Studies Program operates its admissions process on a rolling admissions cycle. This means that applications are processed and interviews are arranged as the applications are received. The program will not wait until after the application deadline has passed. This means it is to the applicant’s benefit to apply to the program early and to complete the application as soon as possible. With submission of an application later in the process (before the deadline) your application will still be considered, processed, and interview arranged; however, after the class fills applicants will be evaluated for an alternate wait list.
