Mary Baldwin College has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Mary Baldwin College/Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences anticipates matriculating its first class in August 2015, pending Accreditation – Provisional in March 2015. Accreditation – Provisional is an accreditation status for a new PA program that has not yet enrolled students, but at the time of its initial accreditation review, has demonstrated its preparedness to initiate a program in accordance with the accreditation Standards.
In the event the Physician Assistant Program is not granted Accreditation, all application fees, tuition or other fees paid to Mary Baldwin College/Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences will be refunded in full, and the Program will not commence. Provided Accreditation-Provisional is granted, Mary Baldwin College/Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences Physician Assistant Studies Program anticipates accepting a class size not to exceed 45 students.
