Student Employment Policy

The PA program does not prohibit students from being employed while in the program; however, due to the intensity and time demands associated with the program, students are strongly discouraged from working while in the program.

Classes will occasionally meet in the evening, early morning, and weekends as is necessary. Students should make themselves available to attend all classes as scheduled.

The program will strive to make as few changes as possible to the established schedule, but cannot guarantee there will be no changes, as some contributing variable factors are not within control of the program. A tentative schedule will be provided at the beginning of each semester.

Students will be expected to commit 40 hours or more a week to rotations, depending on the expectations of the clinical site. Days, hours, shifts, and geographical location will vary, depending on the type of rotation and the clinical site. Students are expected to conform to the schedule set forth by the clinical site and preceptor. Students are never to ask a clinical site or preceptor to alter or accommodate a schedule on their behalf, but a clinical site or preceptor could ask you to change your schedule to accommodate them.

The program understands students may need to meet financial obligations and trusts the decisions made by its students to prioritize as needed. Students will take responsibility for decisions made that can affect their educational achievements and their future career as a PA.
