Option Pre-Physical Therapy Undergraduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
BioHealth Sciences - College of Science



The BioHealth Sciences major combined with the Pre-Physical Therapy option is designed to meet most or all of the requirements for admission to PT programs across the U.S. Satisfactory completion of the pre-PT option facilitates, but does not guarantee, admission to a PT program; 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 current requirements.

Students may not combine the Pre-Physical Therapy option with any other option offered with the BioHealth Sciences major (Pre-Medicine/Pre-Podiatry, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Clinical Laboratory Science, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Physician Assistant).
