UIC undergraduates can declare a Pre-Physical Therapy educational goal to prepare for entry into UIC's Doctor of Physical Therapy, or other PT programs.
Preprofessional educational goals are curricula designed for students who intend to pursue their undergraduate or graduate education at University of Illinois professional schools. Preprofessional educational goals are complementary to degree programs, and students must apply as undeclared or to a specific bachelor's degree program.
The highly competitive GPPA program allows a limited number of first year students per year to be admitted to UIC with guaranteed admission to Doctor of Physical Therapy. Students follow a specific curriculum and meet established performance criteria to maintain guaranteed admission.
