The Bachelor of Science in Physician Assistant Studies is conferred when the Physician Assistant Program requirements are fulfilled, including successful completion of all Physician Assistant Major Discipline requirements, in addition to City College's General Education Requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree.
Certification: Upon completion of all pa program and CCNY degree requirements, the graduate is permitted to sit for the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants examination.
