The Higher Learning Commission has granted approval for Franklin College to offer the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies.
The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Franklin College Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Franklin College.
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.
PA consistently ranks in the top 5 in U.S. News and World Report’s Best Jobs and the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 37% growth rate from 2016-2026.
