Accreditation Status


The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the West Liberty University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by West Liberty University. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

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remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards.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 approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2022. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.

West Liberty University was granted approval to offer a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies by The Higher Learning Commission on March 28, 2012.

West Liberty University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission. The next accreditation review is in 2018.
