Plan for Pre-Application Requirements and Develop Computer Skills

Before applying, students must complete 25 hours of observation in at least two physical therapy settings (observing a PT or a PTA) and complete all pre-requisite courses for a grade of 'C' or higher.  Experience in on-line courses is highly recommended prior to applying to the program. More information about obtaining observation hours is available at: Observation Code of Conduct for Potential PTA Students.  Incomplete applications or requests for application exceptions are not considered.
