Most programs are fully accredited, and most include both didactic and clinical practice components. At its March 2013 meeting, the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) placed the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Physician Assistant program on Accreditation-Probation until its next validation review in March 2015. Probation is a temporary status, limited to two years, of accreditation conferred when a program does not meet the Standards and when the capability of the program to provide an acceptable educational experience for its students is threatened. Once placed on probation, programs that still fail to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn. Specific questions regarding the program and its plans should be directed to the interim program director and/or the appropriate institutional official(s). Upon notification of the probation status, the School of Allied Health Sciences immediately initiated steps to move the program toward compliance with educational standards established by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA).

Admission to School of Allied Health Sciences programs is competitive and by application to the school. Admission and application deadlines vary for each program. Admission to Texas Tech University does not ensure or guarantee admission to the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Allied Health Sciences, nor does admission to the School of Allied Health Sciences confer admission to Texas Tech University.

Prospective students and other interested persons are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs for information on allied health careers and educational programs. Students who are attending Texas Tech University and wish to take the courses to satisfy prerequisite requirements for these professional programs will be advised through the Office of Preprofessional Health Careers at Texas Tech University, Room 340, Chemistry Building, 806.742.3078.
