Hi, 

Applied and still waiting for a decision. Only thing I've heard is that ARC-PA officially granted them Provisional Accreditation. So it's officially an accredited PA program. Otherwise, still anxiously waiting. lol!

Are any of you on this thread Kean Students, I'm going to take my remaining prerequisites at the school (even before I knew the PA program was going to exist because close to home and etc). If so which microbiology class did you take, they have 2 one says it's for students in health care careers other says it's for bio majors? And once again if Kean students any advice navigating the school website/ do you have insider knowledge on the program?

I think that’s a good thing nothing was heard just yet. I’ve been calling non stop just to find out if it is accredited or not and it has been thank god! A chance to get in to start hopefully. I wonder how many have applied. And when they will start interviewing.

It will also be the cheapest PA school in New Jersey for residents. Director also worked at the other big PA programs in NJ. 

I heard that too! Director has lots of experience! That being said it’s going to be tough to get in. They are only taking 20. Nail biter.

Was a Kean student. I’m alumni now. However, I think you should make sure with the director which one you should take so you aren’t taking the course they don’t want. Also I do know when I was in school the courses that had red underneath with those sayings were specific to a major. But if your a bio major just take the bio one.

I applied Mid-Late January. I was initially skeptical since it's a brand new program, but am hopeful. The Director and Assistant Director are also very accessible and happy to discuss concerns through Webex/Zoom (I had session with the Program Director and she was very helpful). You can try reaching out too!

Hi all,

Busy times, sorry about the delay. So thankfully I interviewed and was "conditionally accepted" !!! 😁

Conditions being that I submit a final transcript from my prior school (I currently go to Rutgers). I did also notice that they delayed their application deadline until June 15th, so there's plenty of time for those who wanna apply. I'm really happy that I made it this far. But I'm free to answer any questions about my credentials and healthcare experience. Best of luck to everyone else who's applying. 😀

Sure.

Undergrad GPA: 3.02

Master's GPA: 3.4

PA Shadowing Hours: 100 (Kean counts hours worked with a PA as well).

Healthcare Hours: 839 ER Volunteer Hours + 3,240 Medical Scribe Hours.

 

I hope this doesn't discourage anyone with other stats from applying. They do factor in retakes and upper-level courses for Prerequisite GPA. Feel free to ask any other questions. 😀
