West Liberty University receives ARC-PA accreditation

West Liberty University Physician Assistant Program received its Provisional Accreditation effective 16 September, 2011.

The ARC-PA has granted Provisional Accreditation to the Physician Assistant Program sponsored by West Liberty University.

Provisional accreditation is an accreditation status. The granting of provisional accreditation indicates that the plans and resource allocation for the proposed program appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards, if fully implemented as planned. Provisional Accreditation does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. Provisional status is limited to no more than three years for any program.

The date for the next comprehensive review of the program by the ARC-PA will be scheduled to occur no earlier than four months after students have entered the clinical phase of the professional program and no later than 6 months after graduation of the first class.

Note: Provisional Accreditation is the status given to all newly ARC-PA accredited program.
