Click Here to view the current graduate program fee schedule. Students are enrolled in our program year-round, including summers. DPT students pay differential tuition for each credit hour. This fee covers many of the students' additional expenses including lab supplies, professional liability insurance, and professional organization fees. Travel to and from clinical education sites is an additional expense, as are textbooks.
- What kinds of scholarships or financial aid are available?
Information is available in the Scholarships and Financial Aid section. Graduate PT students are eligible to apply for Federal student assistance; however, the types of assistance available to graduate students are limited. Opportunities through internal and external funding sources are in the form of graduate assistantships and other scholarships. Refer to the UTC Financial Aid web page for further information.
- How do I apply for Financial Aid?
Contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information. Applications for departmental scholarships will be distributed to new and current students during the first week of classes.
- Does the DPT Program give priority or apply different tuition rates to in-state applications?
The cost to attend the program is different for in-state vs. out-of-state students. Please note that it is difficult to establish residency for tuition purposes in Tennessee if you are not already a resident. Non-residents should make all decisions based on out of state tuition. Residents of specific Georgia and Alabama counties may qualify for regional tuition rates. Click here for specific information.
