Our program is structured for entry as a first year student. This means that once you are accepted into the program you will remain with us for six years earning both a bachelors degree in clinical health studies as well as a doctorate in physical therapy (DPT). Accepted students are guaranteed eligibility for the graduate portion of the DPT curriculum, provided academic and essential functions for physical therapy practice requirements are met. An additional application or GRE exam are not needed.
To be considered for admission, you must complete a minimum of three years of high school mathematics and one year each of biology and chemistry. In addition, one year of physics is strongly recommended. We also strongly recommend that you demonstrate some knowledge of the physical therapy profession, such as volunteer experience, shadowing, or employment.
Please familiarize yourself with both the academic policies and essential functions for physical therapy practice requirements of the program before applying. These documents will help you understand our expectations so that you can make an informed decision regarding the pursuit of this profession. Students must be able to meet these standards throughout the six-year program.
