Accreditation Status – Program – ARC-PA

The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to The University of Tampa Department of Physician Assistant Medicine Program sponsored by The University of Tampa.

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 at

Accreditation Status – University – SACSCOC

In November 2017, UT was notified that the board of trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges reviewed the materials seeking approval of the Master in Physician Assistant Medicine. It was the decision of the board to approve the program and include it in the scope of the current accreditation.
