Students applying through the PA Fast Track program must designate the year they plan to matriculate into the PA program.
Full time UC students are welcome to apply at any time during the course of their undergraduate studies. As the PA Fast Track is designed to allow high achieving students to enter the PA Program prior to receiving a bachelor’s degree, the ideal time to apply would be during the summer following the spring semester of a student’s freshman or sophomore year. In order to complete the master’s requirements in five years, the applicant must matriculate into the master’s program no later than the spring semester of their junior year.
