Accreditation, PANCE Performance, & Student Attrition


The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted the Weber State University Physician Assistant Program Accreditation-Provisional status.

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. The program's accreditation history can be viewed on the ARC-PA website.

PANCE Performance

Upon graduation of the first cohort, the Weber State University Physician Assistant Program will publish first-time Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) rates for the five most recent graduating classes, as provided by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).

Student Attrition

In accordance with accreditation standards, Weber State will publish student attrition rates once the program graduates its first cohort of students in 2024. Coming soon!
