The Physical Therapy program at Husson University is an early assurance program and accepts most of its students directly from high school into a 6-year BS/DPT degree pathway. The Department of Physical Therapy at Husson University does not anticipate that there will be any open seats available in the DPT class for college transfer students or graduates during the 2021-22 admissions cycle. The DPT program may, however, have seats in future years. Prospective students are encouraged to visit the DPT program website for updated information.

"This page is intended for college transfer students and graduates ONLY. High school students MUST contact the institution directly for information about the guaranteed freshman-entry program. Do not apply using PTCAS."
