Ithaca College's program in physical therapy is designed as a six year freshmen-entry level BS/DPT program which culminates in a doctorate in physical therapy (DPT). While freshman entry to the program is the norm, transfer opportunities may be available. Transfer spots (internal and external) are competitive and based on available space. Transfer is typically very limited and varies from year to year.
The six year BS/DPT curriculum consists approximately of three years of undergraduate pre-professional coursework (freshmen-junior) and three years of graduate level professional coursework (senior-grad year II). After the senior year, students graduate with a B.S. Degree in Clinical Health Studies. Please note: All students (including transfer students with undergraduate degrees) must successfully complete the IC undergraduate degree in Clinical Health Studies and achieve a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 to be eligible for the graduate portion of the program; we do not accept students directly into the graduate portion of the program.
