MGCCC is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist assistant education program from CAPTE. The program has submitted an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage (see http://www.capteonline.org). Submission of this document does not assure Candidate for Accreditation status. Furthermore, Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the professional phase of the program. Therefore, no students may enroll in the professional courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Although achievement of the status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure the program will be granted accreditation.
Contact the PTA Program Director for further information.
