Candidate for Accreditation is a pre-accreditation status of affiliation with the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education that indicates that the program is progressing toward accreditation and may matriculate students in technical/professional courses. Candidate for Accreditation is not an accreditation status nor does it assure eventual accreditation. “All credits and degrees earned and issued by a program holding candidacy are considered to be from an accredited program.” CAPTE Rules of Practice and Procedure, Part 7.2, Version 20.1.05, May 2020. As such, students graduating from the DPT Program are eligible to take the licensure examination.
