Microscopic Picture of COVID-19

COVID-19 Response

Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences has responded swiftly to the COVID-19 crisis to protect the health of our students, employees and community. You can read more about our ongoing response here.

A Message from President Simcox

As the coronavirus continues to impact more and more of us, we recognize that this is an unprecedented time for our institution and all the members of our College Community. During this time, it’s important that we support each other. Many of you plan to enter the health care field in a matter of months, and others over the course of the next few years. Many of you are seeing firsthand through this pandemic how important your work is and will always be for your patients, your community and your country. PA College is here to support and prepare you so that you can be ready for what is to come, no matter the situation. Thank you for answering the calling for a career in health care.

Waived Enrollment Deposit for Accepted Students

As your education partner through this process, our top priority is keeping you on the path to obtaining your health care degree to serve your community. PA College is waiving our $500 enrollment deposit requirement and allowing students to enroll without any upfront out-of-pocket costs.

Conditional Acceptances

We recognize that obtaining official transcripts and letters of recommendation during this crisis can be challenging. Therefore, we are transitioning to a temporary conditional acceptance process for those prospective students who aren’t able to gather all of their supplemental materials. For more information, please contact the Office of Admissions.

Virtual Info Sessions

The Office of Admissions is holding virtual info sessions on a variety of dates and times. These sessions are a great way to learn the basics about PA College and the admissions process, and start your own PA College journey! Click here to register.

Virtual Appointments

In-person visits have been temporarily suspended, but we invite you to contact the Office of Admissions for a one-on-one virtual appointment!

Online Classes

PA College was one of the first colleges in the area to transition our classes to an online-only environment. The expertise we’ve developed from over a decade of online teaching allowed us to make this transition smoothly and effectively. Curious to see what an online class looks like? Check out the video below for a glimpse into an online class session!

Additional Resources

If you’re struggling academically, personally or with something else, our admissions counselors and academic advisors are always ready to help. You can give them a call or send an email, and current students can schedule an appointment through Starfish. Other student support services, such as clinical skills, writing assistance and the College counselor, continue to be available through Starfish as well, even though we are operating remotely.

Who to Contact If You Have Questions

Prospective students should contact their admission counselor with any questions, or contact the Office of Admissions.

Current students should reach out to their faculty or program director for questions about course content. Academic advisors can help answer questions about academic progression, or direct you to additional resources.
