Developing Programs - Non-Accredited

The following programs are currently working with CAPTE (Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education) to receive their accreditation. 

Per CAPTE: "These programs have admitted at least one class of students and have been granted Candidate for Accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education. Candidacy status indicates that a program is making satisfactory progress toward compliance with accreditation criteria, but it does not assure that a program will achieve accreditation. (Note: Date indicates anticipated graduation of first class.)"
