WVU plans for phased return to campuses for fall 2020 semester. Visit Return to Campus: Health Sciences for information. Visit coronavirus.wvu.edu for the latest regarding COVID-19.

Admission Process

The application period is open each year from January 2 to April 30 for the class beginning the following January.

Due to the current pandemic, the shadowing portion of the application is being waived; however, all applicants are still required to have a comprehensive understanding of the pathologists’ assistant profession.

Please follow each step of the application process thoroughly. Your application will not be considered if it is incomplete or if directions are not followed correctly. All of the following materials must be received by the deadline in order for an application to be considered complete: Official transcripts, signed essential functions form, personal and shadowing statements, curriculum vitae, and two recommendations. Unofficial transcripts may be submitted initially with the application but the official transcripts must be received by the May 31 deadline.

Undergraduate degrees must be conferred by May of the application period. Any undergraduate degrees awarded after the May deadline are ineligible to apply for that application period. The committee will review applications and offer an interview with courses listed as “in progress.” Acceptance into the program will be contingent upon the applicant’s final GPA and conferment of degree.

For questions about the application process, please contact the Program Specialist, Beth Ann McCormick, at bmccormick@hsc.wvu.edu or 304-293-1584
