Arcadia’s nationally ranked Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program is designed for aspiring physical therapists who want to confidently diagnose and treat movement dysfunction in patients of all backgrounds and ages.

Candidates for the hybrid curriculum should be dedicated to advancing the field of physical therapy through evidence-based, research-driven practice. The College of Health Sciences maintains the same admissions standards for the online program as it does for the on-campus program.

Applicants to the Arcadia DPT Online program must have successfully completed a bachelor’s degree and meet the GRE score requirements.

The program has one cohort per year that begins each fall, and accepts and reviews applications year-round.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we have made some changes to our admissions process for the 2020–2021 cohort. We are doing everything we can to support our applicants and ensure that our program remains accessible to students across the country.
