Physical Therapist Assistant Program

Dear Physical Therapist Assistant Program Candidate:

Thank you for inquiring about the Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Program. Enclosed you will find information session dates, program information, including the application requirements, and an application packet for the PTA Program at the Bryan Campus of Blinn College.

The PTA program begins in the fall semester each year, and is designed to be completed in two years. Although many students take their general education courses toward their degree prior to admission, sequencing of the physical therapist assistant classes will still require two years to complete the program.

If you wish to be considered for admission into the program, you must submit evidence of meeting all of the application requirements. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that all application information has been received at the Blinn College PTA Program office, and that their application file is complete.

It is recommended that all interested applicants attend an informational session that will explain the application process, the Physical Therapy profession, the Blinn College PTA Program, course scheduling options, and answer any additional questions you may have. Please e-mail pta@blinn.edu to sign up for an Information Session.

Please see the dates below.

Best wishes in the pursuit of a rewarding career in Physical Therapy through the PTA program at Blinn College.

Sincerely,

Christy Gantt, DPT, PT
Program Director
