The deadline to apply for Kellogg Community College’s Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Program is Wednesday, March 1.

KCC’s PTA Program prepares graduates for certification to become licensed PTAs who work under the direction of a physical therapist to provide therapy services to patients with health-related conditions to help them live fuller and more productive lives.

  • Had a 91.9 percent graduation rate
  • Had a 93.4 percent licensure exam pass rate
