The Non-Matriculated Option for Students Who Are Not Licensed in the United States

Students who are not licensed as physical therapists in the United States may take up to eight (8) credits in the program on a non-matriculated basis.

Completion of these eight credits does not assure acceptance to the tDPT program. However, if you obtain a US physical therapy license within five years of completing the credits, you may apply for admission to the tDPT program. Upon acceptance to the program, your credits will be applied toward completion of the tDPT program. (It remains the student’s responsibility to ensure that the credits and coursework meet the requirements to take the US PT licensing exam.)

In order to be eligible to take these credits, please:

  • Complete the registration form for this option.
  • Submit documentation from Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy (FCCPT) confirming that education completed is substantially equivalent to an accredited PT degree program in the U.S.
