Release Statement

This statement serves as a contractual agreement between you and CASPA. You must agree to these terms in order to submit your application.

Professional Code of Conduct

CASPA applicants are expected and required to abide by a Professional Code of Conduct in order to be considered for entry into the physician assistant profession. You are required to agree to this code in order to submit your CASPA application. Violating this code may subject you to sanctions by the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA), up to and including being barred from entering the physician assistant profession in the United States.

Advisor Release

Selecting Yes for this release allows CASPA to release certain information to pre-health advisors at schools you previously attended. This information includes some application information, including your GPA, the names of the physician assistant programs to which you applied, and which program, if any, you matriculate into. They will not see documentation such as transcripts or letters of evaluation.

If you select No, CASPA will not release your information to advisors. We encourage you to authorize this release, as it is useful to advisors assisting you and other future applicants; however, it will not affect the consideration given to your application.
