The curriculum of the Physical Therapist Assistant program is sequential; therefore a student must achieve a grade of “C” in each PTA course in order to progress to the next semester of coursework. Students who do not maintain a “C” average in all PTA courses will be dropped from the program. Readmission the following year is conditional and contingent upon compliance with the “Readmission Policy” outlined in the PTA Student Handbook.
