Financial Assistance for Doctor of Physical Therapy Students

UE Students in both the 3+3 and the 4+3 models will receive their primary UE merit-based scholarship throughout undergraduate and graduate studies, as long as all renewal criteria are met. View full financial aid policy for UE Pre-Physical Therapy and/or Doctor of Physical Therapy students.

Second degree seeking students are students who have completed a bachelor's degree at another university, but plan to pursue the professional Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree at UE. If selected for admission into the DPT program, these students will be considered for a UE Academic Scholarship currently worth $10,000 per year when they enroll in the program. Students with a bachelor’s degree may borrow at the graduate level in the Federal Direct Stafford Loan and Grad PLUS Loan programs. This financial aid information also applies to students who earned a BS degree from UE but did not immediately continue in the DPT program. View more financial aid information for DPT Transfers.
