Physical Therapy Graduate Tuition and Fees
Springfield College offers a Doctor of Physical Therapy in two different tracks.
Track One: Direct Entry
The direct entry track begins when a student enters Springfield College as a first-year undergraduate student in the health science/pre-physical therapy program. In just six years these students will be able to earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy at a reduced rate. In this program, students attend four years of undergraduate study with an additional summer term between their junior and senior year, followed by two years of graduate study after their undergraduate degree is conferred. Cost savings come in two forms:
- Graduate-level coursework will begin during the student's year four of undergraduate study.
- Grant funding is automatically applied to the student's graduate phase of study.
|UNDERGRAD PORTION||First-Year Rate (2023-2024)||x4 Years||+ Summer Term between Junior and Senior (12 credits)|
Tuition and fees for the undergraduate portion would be reduced by a student's undergraduate financial aid.
