There are always great students that do not receive the direct admit offer or who decide once at Marquette that they would like to pursue Physical Therapy. Students not offered a direct spot can still enroll at Marquette and begin completing undergraduate requirements for transfer into the professional phase of the DPT curriculum. These students parallel the academic program pursued by those students offered direct freshman admission. However, admission to the professional phase is not guaranteed. Students make special application for admission to the professional phase at the end of their junior year or upon completion of the required courses. Traditionally we have accepted at least 10 internal candidates.
Internal applicant procedures include:
Marquette graduates are considered internal transfer applicants who have taken half (at least 11 semester credits) or more of the 23 prerequisite credits at Marquette.
Transfer admission is on a competitive basis. The best candidates will be selected from the pool of applicants. The application deadline is February 1.
