    They're a candidate for accreditation with CAPTE. If your state doesn't recognize candidate status with CAPTE, then this could be a risk if they fail to earn accreditation.

    Correction: It appears their curriculum meets state requirements without accreditation.

    The program has determined that its curriculum meets the state educational requirements for licensure or certification in all states, the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands secondary to its accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education, based on the following:

    CAPTE accreditation of a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant program satisfies state educational requirements in all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Thus, students graduating from CAPTE-accredited physical therapist and physical therapist assistant education programs are eligible to take the National Physical Therapy Examination and apply for licensure in all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. For more information regarding state qualifications and licensure requirements, refer to the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy website at www.fsbpt.org.

    Graduates of Hanover DPT Program are eligible to sit for the NPTE immediately following graduation.

    Below is the U.S. Dept of Education (USDE) rule change which allows students to sit for the licensure exam immediately upon graduation. Further, because of this rule change, initial accreditation status is no longer required to sit for the exam. Additionally, cohort number two may complete the program and take the exam if initial accreditation is not granted. A third cohort may not be accepted if initial accreditation is not granted. Candidacy is synonymous with pre-accreditation.

    From USDE Federal Register page 58924 602.23(f)(2) Effective July 01, 2020: "All credits and degrees earned and issued by an institution or program holding pre-accreditation from a nationally recognized agency are considered by the Secretary to be from an accredited institution or program."
