To be considered for admission into CMU's PA Program, students must have completed or be in the final stages of completing an undergraduate degree, the prerequisite course requirements, a minimum of 100 paid direct patient care hours, and the Graduate Record Exam (GRE).

Applicants are evaluated based on their own credentials and merit.  The program does not favor any specified individuals or groups; the admission process is based on those applicants who meet or exceed the listed program requirements, with additional consideration given to those who also fit the program's mission.  Applicants who apply on time and meet the minimum prerequisite requirements are granted consideration for admission to the program, but are not guaranteed to be admitted.  However, it must be noted that Central Michigan University's Physician Assistant Program has a single Articulation Agreement with Northern Michigan University, whereby four applicants can potentially be admitted each year.
