Applicants to the Mississippi College Physician Assistant Program are required to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) general test. The program office must receive an official GRE score report for each student prior to final admissions decisions or matriculation. Applications will be reviewed if GRE scores are not yet received by the program. However, final admissions decisions cannot be made until all application materials are received including GRE scores. The Mississippi College Physician Assistant Program's specific program code for the GRE is #0598.
Applicant GRE scores are assessed in conjunction with the complete profile. In order to matriculate into the PA program applicants must be eligible for admission to the Graduate School. A minimum score or equivalent with the new scoring system at or above 146 verbal and 140 quantitative is required for admission to the Mississippi College Graduate School. The PA program does not set a minimum acceptable score for the GRE but considers scores at or above 155 verbal, 150 quantitative, and 2.5 on the writing component as more competitive.
