PTST Program Progression

Two Year / Four Year Semester Progression

The PTST program at Kent State University at East Liverpool is an integrated 2-year program. Most courses are prescriptive in that they serve as pre-requisites to the PTST Program courses. Once enrolled in the PTST Program, all PTST courses must be taken in sequence. An inability to complete the PTST courses in sequence will result in a failure to progress and delay graduation. Students accept responsibility for completing all graduation requirements for the Associate of Applied Science in Physical Therapist Assistant Technology degree.
