Students enrolled in the Direct Entry PA Program (beginning with the freshman class entering Hofstra in the Fall of 2015) will be charged the standard undergraduate tuition until a bachelor of science degree is earned. Once the degree is granted, students will be charged the standard graduate tuition.

Students may withdraw from the PA program at any time except during the final examination period. This request must be made in writing to the program director.  Upon receipt of a request for withdrawal prior to the end of the first week of classes, please consult the Hofstra University Class Schedule.  Students must also follow University withdrawal policies.
