+ - Accreditation

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted provisional accreditation status to the Chapman University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Chapman University. (updated March 2019)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.

Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.

In addition, Chapman University is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities (WSCUC). Chapman was first accredited in 1956 and was last reaffirmed February 2014. Chapman University’s next WSCUC accreditation reaffirmation IRP is scheduled for 2022.
