Application to a health professions school begins approximately 16-18 months prior to matriculation.

The HPAC assists you in the process by interviewing and writing Composite Letters of Evaluation that includes our assessment as well as verbatim copies of your individual letters of recommendation. Most health professions schools expect to receive our HPAC letter of evaluation.

In order to obtain the HPAC letter, you must go through our campus application process. Lafayette’s HPAC application process runs through the spring semester of the year you apply. By the end of our process, you will be ready to submit your official applications to health professions schools (most application services open in early June). Applying close to the opening dates is very important as most schools have rolling admissions.


Please note:

  • All LORs must be received by Ms. Glaus by March 1st. LORs must be submitted on letterhead as hard copies or sent as PDF attachments. LOR must be accompanied by a completed Recommendation Release form with either a hand-written or electronic signature of letter writer.
