Please Note

The Physical Therapist Assistant program is a limited-entry program; a maximum of 16 students will be accepted for the fall of each year.

To be considered for admission to the PTA program, an applicant must first be accepted as a Dixie State University student. Then, the applicant must complete a separate application to the PTA program. Everything one needs to know about applying to DSU can be found here.

Requirements to apply to the Physical Therapist Assistant program and course prerequisites can be found here.

Students accepted into the PTA program will be going to school, studying, and attending clinical education for approximately 18 months. Students are advised not to consider employment while in the program. Some individuals are able to work part-time but must have a very flexible schedule that also allows for extended times off. Most students are not employed while in the program.
