DPT Open House

An admissions Open House for prospective students is held each semester. The next Open House is scheduled for Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 3:30pm in room 116 Westlake Hall on Bradley’s campus. This is an opportunity to:

  • See our campus
  • Meet and interact with the faculty
  • Talk with current students
  • Ask questions about the program, curriculum, clinical sites, associated cost and the admissions process

This open house is limited to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, and to those applying to PT school in the fall of 2018. Because of limited seating, we request that each prospective student register for the open house. Light refreshments will be served.
