- The University of Findlay is one of a few physical therapy programs in Ohio that offer an early assurance program.
- The early assurance program allows high school seniors to apply to reserve their seat in the Traditional DPT Program.
- After three years of undergraduate study, the student is guaranteed a seat in the Traditional DPT Program, providing they maintain the minimum requirements needed to remain in the early assurance program.
Early Assurance Application Process
- Apply to The University of Findlay through UF admissions
- Upon acceptance to the university and if the early assurance criteria are met, applicants will be given access to a separate supplemental early assurance option application.
