Per CAPTE: "This program has begun the process toward accreditation by submitting an Application for Candidacy. A review of the Application for Candidacy is scheduled and a determination on candidacy is anticipated prior to their stated matriculation date. Submission of an Application for Candidacy does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the professional phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in professional courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved."

Should the program not obtain Candidate for Accreditation status and not be eligible to admit students, applicants to the program will not be refunded the PTCAS application fee paid to apply to the program.

Program Description

The Hawai'i Pacific University Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program is hybrid, accelerated, and the first of its kind in Hawai'i. Students are able to reside anywhere in the US and complete the HPU DPT Program in two years, faster than the 30 - 36 months it takes to graduate from most traditional DPT programs. This means students are in the clinic treating patients and earning an income sooner. The HPU DPT experience includes the best of online distance education, hands-on lab immersions on HPU's beautiful downtown Honolulu campus, and 32 weeks of full-time clinical experiences. The program provides students the opportunity to complete clinical education across the US, including unique experiences on O'ahu, Maui, Hawai'i, Kauai, and other Pacific Islands.  Students take no more than four courses during each 8-week academic term to optimize learning by decreasing cognitive load.
