*Matriculation dates are estimated or anticipated and are not guaranteed as all programs must undergo a significant review and approval process through local, state, and national agencies in order to become provisionally accredited. 

1Colorado Mesa University Physician Assistant Program has applied for Accreditation – Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). Colorado Mesa University anticipates matriculating its first class in January 2019, pending achieving Accreditation – Provisional status at the September 2018 ARC-PA meeting. 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. The program will not commence in the event that provisional accreditation is not received.
