Financial Aid Application and Deadlines
Since the PA academic year actually begins during the last semester (Summer B) of one University of Florida academic year and continues through the first three semesters of the following University academic year (Fall, Spring, and Summer A), two applications for financial aid during the School of Physician Assistant Studies’ academic year must be submitted to cover the full four semesters of the PA academic year. Applicants do not need to wait to be accepted into the School of Physician Assistant Studies before submitting the first of these two applications and are encouraged to apply for financial aid for Summer B as soon as they submit their CASPA application.
The second of the two applications can be submitted any time after January of the year in which students will actually matriculate into the School of Physician Assistant Studies.
