Graduation and Degree Requirements

To earn the MSPAS degree, the graduate student must:

  • Have an overall minimum grade point average of 3.0 in all required PA courses with a maximum of one ‘U’ (unsatisfactory) course grade.
  • Be in good academic and professional behavior standing as determined by the Academic and Professional Progress Committee.
  • Submit an application for graduation to the Registrar by Oct. 15 preceding the graduation date.
  • Complete all required MSPAS degree courses and requirements in a satisfactory manner within four calendar years.
  • Demonstrate professional and personal attributes appropriate for continuance in the program and entry into the profession.
  • Demonstrate entry-level competency as determined through the summative evaluation process that occurs in December prior to graduation.

It is the student’s responsibility to be familiar with the preceding requirements for graduation.

A student receiving a 'U' grade is subject to dismissal from the program. If a student is dismissed from the program, the student may appeal by employing the Elon University appeals process as detailed in the PA Student Handbook. For consideration for re-admission into the program, the student must compete with the new applicants for the program.
