The refund policy is as follows: prior to the first day of class, 100% of the tuition payment made will be refunded; during the first week of class, 80% will be refunded; during the second week of class, 60%; during the third week of class, 40%; and during the fourth week of class, 20%. No refunds will be made after the fourth week of classes.
To graduate, students are expected to have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or higher. Students will be placed on academic probation if their cumulative GPA drops below 2.67 in the first or second year of study, or below 3.0 at the end of the summer semester of the third year. Students who are on academic probation will not be allowed to progress onto the Clinical Education components of the program. They will need to first retake one or more of their past courses and raise their cumulative grade point average to the acceptable program level.
Information about other academic regulations, standards of conduct and procedures for dismissal from the Physical Therapy Program are contained in the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Degree Program Student Handbook.
