Physical Therapy (DPT) - Costs & Financial Aid

Investing in a high-quality, high-value USciences education is the first step to a successful career in one of today’s most in-demand science and healthcare professions. That value is evident in the successful outcomes of our graduates–who are proven everywhere they go.

It helps to understand the value of a USciences education when you understand the cost of attendance, which consists of both direct and indirect costs. Direct costs are those that will appear on your USciences tuition bill, and are required to be paid to the University, such as tuition, fees, housing and meal plan costs. Indirect costs include expenses for which you are not billed by USciences but are still necessary and will vary, such as books, supplies, transportation, personal costs, and possibly off-campus room and meal expenses.

The USciences  Net Price Calculator is designed to help first-time college students estimate their costs, along with their scholarship and financial aid eligibility.

Incoming transfer students should contact the Transfer Admissions Office at 888-996-8747 or by emailing transfer@usciences.edu for information regarding scholarship eligibility and financial aid options.

Additional Information Regarding Clinical Experiences

Students are expected to travel outside of the tri-state area for all of the clinical experiences. Costs incurred for travel, housing, tolls, food, parking, etc. are the responsibility of the student. In addition, students are responsible for health and safety requirements such as fingerprinting, required by most clinical rotation sites.  Students may use Federal or Alternative Educational Loan funding to help with the miscellaneous costs related to clinical experiences.  Contact the Financial Aid Office for further information.
