3 + 3 Degree Path

We offer a six year plan of study to qualified students leading to a bachelor's degree in either exercise science or biology and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. To be accepted into this program, students must:

  • Graduate HS with a 3.5 GPA
  • Graduate in the top 25% of their HS class (academically), AND
  • Have an ACT score of at least 25 or an SAT score of at least 1150.

Throughout the first three years of this plan of study students need to maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA and upon competition of these three years they need to have 40 hours of physical therapy observation.

Students who are unable to maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA may still apply to the DPT program upon completion of a Bachelor Degree through the graduate admission process.

Students enrolled in the 3 + 3 DPT program are considered undergraduates in years one, two and three.  The fourth, fifth, and for some their sixth years they are considered a graduate student.

All insitutional scholarships for undergraduate programs will not be available during years four, five, and six when they are considered a graduate student. 

Students are encouraged to investigate alternative funding opportunities to complete garduate school during these last years.
