Incoming students are designated as ES majors and begin taking courses required for the bachelor’s degree as freshman. Freshman students who enter the university as declared ES majors are directly admitted to the program. Students must apply to the DPT program in year three of the combined program.
Undergraduate Exercise Science majors who are members of the University Honors College are guaranteed acceptance to the Doctorate Physical Therapy program as long as they maintain eligibility to be in good standing with the Honors College and meet the necessary admissions requirements for the DPT program, including minimum GRE scores and prerequisite GPA of 3.5 or higher. Students in the Honors College must apply to the DPT program and submit their completed application by the stated deadline.
