B.S. in Kinesiology – Early Contingent Physical Therapy


This option will be limited to outstanding students only. Students must meet or surpass yearly requirements to remain in the program:

  • Complete the required course sequence and have a 3.2 GPA at the completion of Freshman year (including summer classes).
  • Receive a minimum grade of B in BIO 220
  • Complete the required course sequence and have a 3.30 GPA at the completion of Sophomore year

Students who successfully meet the above requirements, have taken the GREs, and have completed a minimum of 30 hours observation in a PT setting may apply for early contingency admission to the PT program. It is important to note that acceptance into the DPT program is not guaranteed, but each student will be considered along with the regular pool of applicants for acceptance into the program.

Students who do not meet the annual requirements or who do meet requirements but are not accepted into the DPT program can complete the undergraduate track in Exercise Science and apply for the DPT program during their senior year. A four year degree in Exercise Science provides students with the necessary prerequisites to apply for admission to any DPT program following attainment of an undergraduate degree. Changing from the Early Contingent DPT Admissions track to the Exercise Science track at any point during the undergraduate program will not delay the student’s ability to earn a Bachelor’s degree.
