5 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS I am a full-time clinician. Will I have to come to campus every week? No. Students will be required to attend on-campus sessions approximately one-to-two times per semester or year. I have been out of school for an extended period of time. Will I be able to keep up with my studies? Yes. The program is designed to allow time for reading and integration of the materials, as well as online discussions with classmates and faculty. Since you will not be traveling to campus every week, this saved time can be used for study. Do I need any special computer skills? You are expected to have basic computer skills, such as word processing. You will need a computer that utilizes MS windows, MS PowerPoint, and an internet connection (broadband is recommended over dial-up). Adobe Acrobat Reader for pdf files can be accessed for free via your Internet connection. An online tutorial for PowerPoint will be provided for those not familiar with this program. How many classes may I take as a non-matriculated student before applying to the program? You may take one course before completing your application for admission. How long does it take to complete the program? Depending on the number of credits required, we anticipate that typical students will take one-to-three years. However, there is a five-year limit to complete the degree. (This degree will be offered for a limited time only.) Do I have to take courses in a particular sequence? No. Courses are designed to be taken in any sequence. Can I take a course as a non-matriculated student? Yes, however, this is limited to one course. How will this degree prepare me for practicing in today s health care arena? Our program is designed to prepare you to meet the APTA s Vision 2020 statement by augmenting your professional education to achieve a standard education for the profession of physical therapy. Small class sizes, personal attention, exceptional interaction between students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community.
