Traverse City Campus

GVSU Moving to CASPA

The GVSU PAS program is using CASPA (Central Application Service for Physician Assistants) for the upcoming application cycle!  CASPA is a service of the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) and has been established since 2001.  The CASPA application process is designed to simplify the PA school application process by allowing students to apply to several programs with only one application.  Currently 95% of accredited PA programs across the country use CASPA to process applications. See below for specific admission requirements for the GVSU PAS program or visit the CASPA webpage ( for additional information.

In addition to general admission requirements, which include GPA, prerequisite courses, recommendation forms, GRE, and interview, admission to the Traverse City campus will also include the following considerations: previous/current residence in Northern Michigan and current/previous connections to or experiences in Northern Michigan.
