Entering the DPT Program

The doctorate of physical therapy is a graduate degree. Students may apply to the physical therapy DPT program at various points in their academic careers. The department will guarantee a place in the program to 36 students. These students take three or four years to finish the entry requirements and then spend three years in graduate study. They receive a B.S. at the end of their fourth year and the DPT at the end of their sixth year of study. If there is space in the program, transfers from within Utica College or from other institutions may apply for one of these guaranteed spots.

Students with a bachelor's degree can apply directly to the physical therapy department. Before entering the three-year DPT program, they must have successfully completed all entry requirements.
