Please Note:

The Anesthesiologist Assistant programs have transitioned to a new application system, called CASAA (Centralized Application Service for Anesthesiologist Assistants) CASAA is the online application service for all Master’s level Anesthesiologist Assistant education programs in the U.S. Through CASAA, prospective students may use a single web-based application and one set of materials to apply to multiple programs. Since one set of materials will assist you in applying to multiple programs, and it will necessary for applicants to upload many of the required supporting documents in CASAA (reference forms, official transcripts, test results, etc.), please refrain from sending hardcopies of the listed required documents to the program offices unless instructed to do so.

Academic programs and required pre-medical courses will be accepted from institutions that are regionally accredited. Please see the list of accepted Regional Higher Education Accreditation Agencies.
