Paul Spear Appalachia Scholarship

Two students per class will be chosen to receive the Paul Spear Appalachia Scholarship. The scholarship is based on the applicant’s desire to provide healthcare in Southeastern Ohio and/or the Appalachia area and financial need. The award covers half of the tuition for both the didactic and clinical phases of the Program as long as the student maintains a 3.0 GPA throughout the Program. In repayment of the scholarship, the student commits to a one-for-one service agreement to practice in Southeastern Ohio and/or the Appalachia area for each year of the scholarship award (two-year maximum).

Student Work Policies

Due to the rigorous academic course work of Marietta College PA Program, students are discouraged from working outside the classroom during the didactic phase; they are not allowed to work during the clinical rotation phase of their education.

Marietta College requires that all foreign transcripts be evaluated by Educational Credentialing Evaluators, Inc. (ECE), PO Box 514070, Milwaukee, WI 53203-3470; (414)289-3400; www.ece.org. A course by course evaluation U.S. equivalency report is required. The foreign transcript reports are sent to CASPA directly from the agency. If English is not the applicants’ primary language, the applicant must take the internet-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (iBT TOEFL) and receive a score of 100 or above to be considered for admission. Information on the iBT TOEFL may be obtained from their website at http://www.ets.org/toef. An exception to this requirement would be applicants who have received 3 or more years of secondary education (high school) and/or full-time (12+ credit hours/each semester) post-secondary education (college/university) in the United States.
