CASPA Fee Waiver Update
At PAEA, we believe the cost of applying to PA programs should not be a barrier to becoming a PA. We understand that application costs can delay and deter applicants from submitting to fewer than the national average of 7.5 programs. Historically PAEA has only covered the initial submission fee ($179). We are pleased to announce the expansion of our Fee Waiver Program to cover the first and second designations ($235); applicants are responsible for any remaining funds associated with applying to three or more PA programs.
As a reminder, PAEA has removed the applicant fee waiver status from WebAdMIT. We encourage programs to request applicants provide a copy of their fee waiver award email via the Documents section of the application, or have it sent directly to the program. We have created a job aid explaining how programs may use this information and an infographic that may be shared with your in-progress applicant pool:
