Application for Admission

Physician Assistant Program

Once again, the Sullivan University Physician Assistant Program will handle the application process in-house. The use of CASPA will be considered in the future.

The admissions cycle will open on May 16, 2016 and remain open until October 1, 2016 (for the class scheduled to start in June 2017). This page will be activated at that time with the PA Program electronic application, recommendation form and direct patient contact verification form. Do not use the online application offered under regular admissions.

Please note:  All accompanying documents to the application must be postmarked by December 15, 2016. Any application file not complete by December 15th will not be considered.

When the application is available, you will be asked for your contact information, emergency contact information, education and work history. The application does not have a “save” feature so please have your information available when you start the process.

You will be asked to upload a personal statement/essay (750-1000 words) about yourself, your interests, why you chose to pursue Physician Assistant as a career and your future plans as a PA. The personal statement should communicate your motivation, goals, circumstances, and experiences related to a career as a Physician Assistant.

Official transcripts and official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), if applicable, should be mailed to the Sullivan University PA Program, 2100 Gardiner Lane, Louisville, KY 40205. All applicants whose native language is not English, must submit TOEFL scores to demonstrate English proficiency. Applicants native to Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom are presumed to be proficient.

The Recommendation Form and Direct Patient Contact Verification Form should be downloaded, completed by the appropriate individuals. These forms can be email, faxed or mailed. These forms will not be available until the admissions cycle opening on May 16, 2016.

Finally, you will be asked to submit an online payment in the amount of $100 for the application fee.

Should you have any questions, please send an email to or contact the Admissions Coordinator at 502-413-8626.
