While no specific number of observation hours is required, applicants are expected to have researched the profession sufficiently to demonstrate that they are making a career choice based on a sound understanding of the role of the PT. Verified observations must be completed post high school and entered into PTCAS.
The Program will consider whichever is higher: cumulative GPA or most recent 64 credit GPA, as calculated by PTCAS. A minimum of 3.0 is required.
A grade of C or better is required in all physical therapy prerequisite courses in order to apply and to be admitted into the CSS DPT program.
The Program calculates a prerequisite GPA based on our required prerequisite courses. If a prerequisite course was repeated, the highest grade is used in the prerequisite GPA calculation.
Any prerequisite course taken for credit (pass/fail, credit/no credit, satisfactory/unsatisfactory, etc.) between spring 2020 - summer 2021 will be accepted; however, it will not count toward the prerequisite GPA. We strongly encourage grades if there is an option between grades and pass/fail.
