The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Wingate University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Wingate University. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.
Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be September 2024. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
The program’s accreditation history can be viewed on the ARC-PA website at http://www.arc-pa.org/
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is the body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states. It serves as the common denominator of shared values and practices primarily among the diverse institutions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia for those institutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaureate, master’s or doctoral degrees (see www.sacscoc.org). Questions about the status of the University’s accreditation may be obtained from the Commission on Colleges by calling 404-679-4500 or by writing to the SACSCOC home office, 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033. Wingate University is accredited by SACSCOC to award the bachelor’s, master’s, and professional degrees.
Each state has its own individual licensing boards along with their own Physician Assistant licensure
