Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program
The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Trine University Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program sponsored by Trine University. Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding Accreditation-Provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.
Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class. Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be October, 2022.
The program’s accreditation history can be viewed on the ARC‐PA website at: http://www.arc-pa.org/accreditation-history-trine-university/ .
