Trine University offers first-year students a remarkable opportunity to gain “direct entry” to a doctoral degree in physical therapy after completing an approved* undergraduate plan of study in three years or the traditional four years path.

Select first-year students who have achieved superior academic performance in high school and have been officially admitted to an undergraduate major may apply for direct entry to Trine University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Students must select a major in either biology or exercise science.

Direct entry can be achieved through selecting a 3+3 path, three years of accelerated undergraduate work followed by the three-year doctoral program, or the more traditional 4+3 path, four years of undergraduate work plus three years of the doctoral program in physical therapy.**

* A plan of study that enables students to complete their undergraduate degree in 4 years or less while also meeting all DPT program admission requirements must be approved by the undergraduate program chair, and the DPT program director.

** Students in the Direct Admit degree program will not be eligible to receive any institutional scholarships during the years when they are considered graduate students. (For 3+3 students, this is years four, five, and six. For 4+3 students, this is years five, six, and seven.) Students are encouraged to investigate alternative funding opportunities to complete graduate school during these last years.
