Accreditation

The Physical Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), located at 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314. APTA’s telephone number is 1-800-999-2787, accreditation office extension 3245, and their web address is www.apta.org. The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy develops and administers the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) for physical therapists in 53 jurisdictions- the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. These examinations assess the basic entry-level competence for first time licensure or registration as a PT within the 53 jurisdictions. Students will be required to submit a criminal background check and child abuse clearance prior to the first clinical internship. A felony or other serious crime conviction may affect a graduate’s eligibility to sit for the licensing examination or obtain state licensure.
