Program Curriculum

NGU has designed the curriculum as a cohort-based program. Students starting together will follow the recommended course sequence through to graduation. Cohorts are small in size so it is important to apply early. The program requires a high level of commitment involving active participation throughout. All students who matriculate into the PA’s program must complete all program requirements.

The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the North Greenville University Physician Assistant Degree Program sponsored by North Greenville University.
