DPT Application & Admissions

We look beyond grades and coursework to the applicant as a whole person. We review extracurricular responsibilities, leadership positions, community service, work experience, intercollegiate sports, and other factors in holistic admissions.

Upcoming Admissions Events

Attend one of our group informational sessions held online or in person. Topics include an overview of the program and application process as well as more information regarding prerequisite and highly recommended courses. You can also ask current DPT students questions about their experiences.
