Applying for licensing? Here are some things to watch out for:
Complete the Whole Form:
Double check the entirety of the form for any hidden information you, as the applicant, need to fill out. This includes any signature lines that may be hidden at the bottom of the form. These forms are notorious for hard-to-see places for you to complete, so take the time to read it thoroughly. Not signing will cause major delays in processing, as we clearly can't sign for you.
Don't guess at your dates of attendance. The Program keeps records of the start and end dates for all classes and all years. We can fill in your dates for you, and it will save processing time if we don't have to correct any mistaken guesses. We're happy to fill that in for you.
The program cannot order transcripts for you. All transcript requests are handled through the National Student Clearinghouse. You can find instructions on how to go about ordering transcripts on the Registrar's website.
If you are a new & upcoming graduate be sure to select the HOLD UNTIL GRADUATION option or the HOLD UNTIL SUMMER GRADES option if graduation is not available, even if it is after the graduation ceremony. It can take the Graduate School some time to get everyone's final graduation and degree status finalized and posted to your transcripts. Your transcripts are not considered official until that happens, so save yourself some trouble.
If you are submitting forms for the state of Idaho, it is only the EDU 1 "Verification of Physician Assistant Program" form that comes to the Program. Please be sure to fill out the top and sign it. That is the most often missed item and slows down the processing of the form.
EDU 2 is not required for our graduates.
