The Wingate University PA program admits one class each year and the program begins in late August. 40 students are admitted to the main campus of Wingate University and 10 students at the Hendersonville, NC campus. Teaching is through synchronous distance learning: professors and students interact in different places but during the same time. The professors will be teaching from the main campus to the Hendersonville campus and vice versa. You will always be able to see, hear, ask questions, and interact with other students, regardless of the campus you attend.
The Admissions Officer will be on the Hendersonville campus one Friday each month. Please see the "Meet with the Admissions Officer" tab for information about scheduling a meeting at the satellite campus.
