Early Assurance BS/DPT Program

The Early Assurance BS/DPT Consortium (EAC) sunsetted in October 2023.  

ACAPT members can view a list of early assurance member "areas of interest" in the ACAPT member directory.  

Members can also join the early assurance discussion board to connect.

What is early assurance?

Early assurance (EA) programs are varied in their structure, but generally offer combined undergraduate and graduate degrees with criteria on progression or advancement to subsequent years of study.

The term EA is preferred over "freshman-admit/entry," as the latter implies that students may be able to progress to the Doctor of Physical Therapy program without progression criteria.

    Search the ACAPT member portal by interest areas, institution, job role or state.
