The DPT program at BCU is accredited by CAPTE. According to the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy, it states:
General Eligibility Requirements
In order to sit for the NPTE, you must meet the following eligibility requirements: 1. You must be at least eighteen years old. 2. You must have a degree appropriate for the exam level from a CAPTE-accredited institution. Candidates who did not graduate from a CAPTE-accredited institution should see the additional requirements outlined below. 3. You cannot have an open security investigation or sanctions that have not been completed.
Once you register for the NPTE, your jurisdiction will need to make you eligible for the exam. This process differs by state, so it is important to understand your jurisdiction’s policies and licensing requirements. Jurisdictions often require a licensure application, supporting academic records, an application fee, or other documentation before they make their candidates eligible for the NPTE. It is your responsibility to ensure that your jurisdiction has all the necessary information to make you eligible for the exam.
