The Wingate University Physician Assistant Studies program uses Central Application Service for Physician Assistants(CASPA) as our admissions application for the programs in Wingate and Hendersonville, NC. Applicants are asked to choose either the Wingate or Hendersonville Campus in order to submit a CASPA application.

The Wingate campus is located just 30 minutes outside of Charlotte, nestled on 540 rolling acres. Impressive facilities on campus and unmatched opportunities as Wingate is positioned in the heart of North Carolina's healthcare providers. The Hendersonville campus offers an educational experience in the mountains of western North Carolina with all of its natural beauty and diversity. Opportunities are offered in this area to work in a variety of environments, including under-served populations as well as distinguished healthcare providers in state-of-the-art facilities. The Wingate University PA Studies Program accepts 60 students per cohort.

There is no supplemental application for this program.
