Ariella Wolf, Chief Advisor

The College of Science offers a preparatory program designed to meet most general requirements for admission to physical therapy schools. Students who complete the four-year pre-physical therapy program earn a BS degree in General Science with a Pre-Physical Therapy option. Satisfactory completion of the OSU course work facilitates, but does not guarantee, admission to a school of physical therapy; applicants are selected on a competitive basis. Students are urged to carefully check admission requirements at their schools of interest and work closely with admission representatives in order to make sure they are meeting all requirements.
