Thank you for your interest in pursuing an application to Marquette University and the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. There are a number of situations which may apply to you as an applicant to the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Marquette University. The majority of top programs nationwide now offer only an entry-level doctoral degree program. Our doctoral program is a six-year curriculum for students admitted at the freshman level. It is a three-year, full-time program for students transferring into the professional phase. Our program is primarily a direct freshmen entry program, but we have traditionally accepted a minimum of 10 internal to Marquette students. External applicants have been accepted on a space available basis. Please click on the link below which applies to your situation.
DPT Program at Marquette University will participate in the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service, known as PTCAS, beginning in July 2013. Applicants applying to the professional phase of the physical therapist education program for the 2014 entering class will apply online using the PTCAS application.
