The admissions process at the Ithaca College MS-PAS program is designed to give balanced consideration to the experiences and attributes of each candidate. To best evaluate personal characteristics such as communication, ethics, and empathy; the program is requiring all admitted learners to complete the CASPer® test. This is an online “situational judgment test” designed to evaluate non-cognitive skills. Results are valid for a single admissions cycle.

For more information regarding the CASPer® test please visit: takecasper.com. The applicant is responsible for the CASPer® test fees. The CASPer® test must be completed after submitting the application. 

The CASPer® test is not required for the 2021-2022 application cycle.
