Pre-Physical Therapy

The entry level Physical Therapist is a Doctoral (DPT) degree. Students can be admitted to PT school with a Bachelor’s degree with any major as long as they have completed all of the prerequisite courses. Admission to PT programs is competitive with 2-3 applicants for each seat available. A GPA of 3.0 is usually required and the average GPA of accepted applicants is approximately 3.6. PT schools generally require a substantial amount (well over 100 hours) of volunteer experience with physical therapy in different settings, such as hospitals, PT clinics, nursing homes, and rehab centers.
