Consider these tips when preparing your application

  • Average GPAs and GRE scores tend to be higher for the Fall term for the full-time DPT, MOT and OTD programs for all campuses.

  • Take a GRE prep course. This score is another big indicator of your academic strength. Visit ETS for more information about the GRE.

  • Students accepted to our full-time programs have GPAs that range from 3.3 to 3.7 and GRE scores that average between 295 and 305 (combined V+Q).

  • Get more experience in the profession. Completing more than the minimum of 80 observation hours in a variety of settings will strengthen your application and give you more insight into your chosen field.

  • You may be selected for an interview as part of the admission process. The interview is a very important step. It allows both you and our faculty to determine if USAHS is the right institution to help you meet your career goals. During the interview, you will be asked to share your motivation for pursuing a degree at USAHS as well as details about your professional background and experiences.

  • Retake any prerequisite course(s) you received a “C” in. Your prerequisite GPA is a big indicator of how successful you will be in our program. If you retake a course and receive a higher grade, we will only factor in the higher grade in the GPA we calculate.

  • FLEX programs students have GPAs that range from 3.2 to 3.5 and GRE scores that range between a 294 and 300 (combined V+Q).

Financial aid is available to help you pay for your graduate education

There are a variety of financial aid tools available to students today, including scholarships, need-based awards, and student loans. Nearly two-thirds of today's college students receive some form of financial aid or assistance programs. Financial aid eligibility is based on two calculations -- the total cost of education and the student’s ability to pay. The cost of education can vary depending on costs for tuition and living expenses.
