GPA Requirements
Overall Undergraduate Cumulative
Additional information about program's GPA requirements
Cumulative GPA is calculated to include ALL academic coursework reported to PTCAS.  All coursework is included in the calculation, including repeated courses.

To be considered a qualified candidate, all official transcripts must be received at PTCAS by application deadline.

In prerequisite calculations, the program uses the course satisfying each prerequisite which has the highest grade earned. If a prerequisite course is repeated, grades of all attempts will be utilized in the GPA calculation. 

All prerequisite courses must be completed for a grade of "C" or better. If prerequisite courses are completed between application (Oct) and matriculation (June) of the cohort, the grades will not be considered in GPA calculations of the current application cycle. A final grade of "C" or better is still required on these "in-progress" prerequisites per a final official transcript if applicant is accepted.

Prerequisite courses that were taken more than 10 years prior to application will only be considered by petition to the DPT Admissions Committee.
