Please visit https://www.marshall.edu/physical-therapy/dpt-early-assurance-program/ for the detailed information about our Early Assurance Program. This program allows high school seniors to apply for conditional acceptance to the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. Successful applicants will have a guaranteed seat pending maintenance of all undergraduate requirements and earning a bachelor???s degree from Marshall University.
Interviews are held during the first two weeks of January 2022. Due to the large number of applicants, a limited numbers of qualified applicants are selected and invited to the interview.
The deposit is non-refundable. Upon matriculation in the program, this money will be applied to the initial tuition installment.
Admission decisions are based on a variety of factors. The primary factor in all admission decisions is prior academic achievement (overall, science, and/or prerequisite grade point average – GPA and GRE scores) and the potential for an applicant to be successful in a rigorous PT curriculum.
An applicant’s volunteer experience, letters of recommendation, and interview performance are reviewed by members of the Admissions Committee.
The Admission’s Committee will also consider additional factors in the final admissions review process (e.g., undergraduate attendance at Marshall University or West Virginia state residency, veteran of the US military, and certain economic, environmental, or geographic indicators contained in the PTCAS application.)
