Kettering College Classes Meeting Online, Faculty & Staff Working Remotely, Due to Coronavirus

Kettering College has moved all face-to-face classes and business operations online as we take precautions to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe during the current novel coronavirus pandemic.

All student activities & events, including those on campus are canceled until further notice.

Student Services (Admissions, Financial Aid, and Records), and Academic Support (tutoring, Writing Center, career services, and advising) have also moved online. It is still their priority to serve students, answer questions, and enroll students for the upcoming semesters.

A Legacy Of Excellence

Kettering College is distinguished as one of the oldest PA programs in the nation. Duke University developed the nation’s first physician assistant program, accepting its first class of PA students in 1965, and Kettering College was not far behind. We have been educating quality Physician Assistant’s since 1973.

  • Accreditation

    • Accreditation Information

      In both 2000 and 2007, the program was granted a seven-year re-accreditation status, the highest possible at that time. In 2014, the program was granted a ten-year reaccreditation, the maximum amount allotted and a top distinction among PA programs.

      The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Master of Physician Assistant Studies Program sponsored by Kettering College. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

      Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be March 2024. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the accreditation standards and ARC-PA policy.
