NMC Transfer Guide

To: Oakland University - Main Campus

Program: Physical Therapy

Starting in the fall of 2002, the Physical Therapy program will become a Doctoral program requiring a Bachelors degree (in any area as long as the prerequisites are completed), with three additional years at the graduate level at Oakland. An overall GPA of a 3.0 is required with a 2.0 in all prerequisite courses. All students must take the GRE.

The Physical Therapy program is an accredited program which prepares students for the master of Physical Therapy degree and professional careers in Physical Therapy. PT is a highly competitive program and admission is based upon successful completion of basic requirements, letters of recommendation, GPA, exposure to the profession and a personal interview. Transfer students must apply to the University and the PT department. Specific dates for admission can be found in the Oakland University catalog. Contact with OU should be made as early in your academic career as possible.


Although Oakland University is a member of MACRAO, Oakland requires additional hours of general education for their students beyond the 32 hours granted by MACRAO. Students are required to complete two additional general education courses once they transfer to Oakland University which may be completed in your major. Oakland does not count English Composition as a general education (under MACRAO), but does require it for graduation. Request the MACRAO stamp be placed on your transcripts in the NMC's records office.
