Financial Aid for the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program
Students entering the Physical Therapy Program as freshmen are awarded UE scholarships as entering freshmen. Please visit Entering Freshmen for detailed information. The year-four value of the primary-merit scholarship follows the student into the graduate portion of the program.
Students who are admitted into the graduate level of the DPT program will receive a UE Merit Scholarship worth $10,000 annually. The award will be available for up to three academic years. One half of the annual award ($5,000) will be applied each fall and spring semester. This award also applies to students who earned their BS degree from UE but did not immediately continue into the DPT program in the summer following graduation from UE.
File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov including UE’s school code (001795) to establish eligibility for both the Federal Direct Loan and Federal Graduate PLUS Loan. During the spring semester prior to beginning the program, detailed information will be emailed regarding FAFSA submission and utilization of loan funds.
The following loans are available to students in this program:
- Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan
