    I have spent hours going over PA sites and comparing programs. This site is very good. Do you have the programs sorted by length of program by chance. I am looking for a 2 year ish program without GRE requirement. I am a non traditional age student with over 90 semester hours in college and most of the pre reqs completed for PA school.

    Do you know of any Online Associate/ or accelerated BA programs for the “physician Assistant” degree. I have a BA in Psychology, but I’m a stay at home Mom..

      There are no online PA programs. You might want to look into distance PA programs. UC Davis used to be one of these (this year they changed). You will need to make some calls to programs to find out their curriculum’s structure.
