4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The credits that they ask for are the pre req that is available on the website. It is standard to other PT schools and as long as you have taking the classes and received a passing grade your credits will be accepted. It's a very simple process.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: It's very easy to communicate between faculty and peers. The workload is very intense and school should be your focus. Together the faculty and my peers help make the process an easier one.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The career fair is an excellent way to network with PTs and learning about other companies along with what they have to offer. Alumni are also constantly contacting us and informing us about job opportunities that they know about.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love how close our class is! We are the best of friends and are always helping each other out. Also, being able to have close relationships with faculty is key to networking and being successful in class.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Every trimester our school hosts a career fair where we get the opportunity to network with PT marketers across the county.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I would like to take the time to applaud USA for their international internship opportunities. Although the application process to do an international internship is extensive there are wonderful opportunities available and the support from the staff is very encouraging. Students have been to Puerto Rico, Belize and Australia just to name a few.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you are looking for a high intensity program this will fit you perfectly. USA is very challenging, but because it is an accelerated program you must be prepared for long days and late nights in the lab or studying. I feel that USA molds us to be exceptional therapists are able to handle anything that comes our way.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The curriculum is very challenging at the University of St. Augustine. The teachers expect a lot from you as a student, but that is how it should be in a doctorate program. Everyday, I spend a couple of hours outside of class, studying and completing my schoolwork.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would choose USA again if I had to do the application process all over again. They have a very professional and challenging program and I am excited to progress and learn all that I can about the profession of physical therapy. At USA, they teachers truly care about you as an individual. They want you to succeed. As they teach, they want you to fully understand and retain the information given. I have not been a student for long, but I can already tell that this program is like a big family, pushing you to be the best you can be.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: This school has a pretty tough course-load but doable if you stay organized and know how to prioritize. The OT community is small and fosters study groups that don't get too overwhelming. The curriculum is well spaced out in that there aren't too many really hard classes in one term.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Everyone wants to help you succeed- students and teachers alike. I like how teachers can be pretty flexible if you know how to ask for what you need.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It has been a struggle to adapt to the amount of work I have, but I am able to do it with great communication from faculty and dedication on my part. Studying with others after class before leaving campus means that I can come home to my husband and actually watch a TV show with him, instead of studying away from him in another room.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I don't like online courses with a full courseload, but they are making it possible for me to graduate early, so I work hard at completing them. It is difficult to manage the amount of coursework at this time, but everyone is in the same boat and everyone helps each other to understand the material to help all of us succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: I do not know about this area of the university yet, so I cannot review it yet, other than I do receive emails often from the career center, so they seem proactive for student success.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are incredible, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to study here. There are many opportunities to get involved with specific areas of interest later in the program, but for the most part you are in a class with about 45 other students who you eat, sleep, and breathe with, in all of your classes. You will find who you click with and will find your study partners, but everyone will get along, because you have to in order to succeed in the DPT program. Solo-riders don't do as well as those who have at least one strong study-buddy.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I can't speak about most of this yet, but USA is dedicated to letting students know about upcoming internships via email and has a network to help maximize your probability of finding a job after graduation.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Anatomy is tough and I have been reviewing and studying it on my own to prepare for the program, but the faculty are great and really want to see their students succeed. Workload for the DPT program: go to school from 7 am to 5 pm, study from 5pm to 8 pm, drive home and pass out. There are some weekend and night courses as well as online classes, so managing your time in this program is critical to your success, and is much more difficult than balancing work-school-life balance in undergraduate school (I used to work 2 jobs and had full-time school as an undergraduate, and graduate school by itself is way more difficult to manage).

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Accelerated program means that I will be able to graduate more quickly and is cheaper than many traditional programs in the area. USA has online and hybrid courses designed to help accelerate the program and keep costs down for the school and its students. It has a well-known and well-respected hands-on manual therapy program for physical therapy.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Awesome alternative to in class 100% of the time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's not easy, but there are things available to help. A good school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great internships available, lots of locations.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: A large workload and intense curriculum, but you finish faster than most schools.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the professors absolutely love what they do and will go out of their way to find a way to help you learn the material. The courses we take are pre-set to earn a DPT, so there isn't much flexibility there. USA does offer all of the classes necessary to earn a MTC, which gives USA students a one up!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school encourages us to be a part of the community rather than having people come to us. In that way they teach us to be self sufficient. While they do not provide us with all the networking that might be helpful, if we asked they would help.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The program is a pre-set 7 trimesters. The school is great about finding a way to let you finish if you fall behind.
