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.

Sandy Van Every, a student in the Physician Assistant Studies Program, has been to Africa three times and is heading to Nicaragua in December to help on a medical mission team. He said hundreds of people walk miles for treatment. The medical team provides vision, dental and medical care, oftentimes without electricity.
Some of his experiences included pulling teeth, testing children in orphanages for HIV, hunting on a safari in South Africa to provide meat for the people and helping the people get glasses. “They’re really appreciative,” Sandy said. “They have nothing.”
