Along with the University, the PA Program strives to create a safe and welcoming environment that embraces differences. Saint Joseph’s University recognizes that a diverse campus community is essential to enriching intellectual exchanges and enhancing cultural understanding, and as such, values equality of opportunity, mutual respect, and diversity. The University does not discriminate in admission, employment or administration of its programs on the basis of gender, age, disability, race, religion, creed, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity or in violation of federal, state and local laws or executive orders. Applicants who are first-generation college students, economically disadvantaged, and/or from populations that are underrepresented in medicine are encouraged to apply.
Applications from students who meet minimum requirements will be reviewed, but meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee an interview or acceptance to the program. Saint Joseph’s PA program reserves the right to update or revise, without notice, admissions criteria and procedures and to make exceptions to admissions policies when it is deemed appropriate.
Special consideration will be given for academic excellence, outstanding patient care experience, community service activities, socioeconomically disadvantaged status, first-generation college graduates and groups underrepresented in medicine, active military, veterans, and students in the peace corps.
