We recognize applicants applying during the 2023/2024 application cycle may not meet Marymount University’s posted grade requirements due to the various official grading policies from applicant institutions as a result of the coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic.  We are prepared to practice flexibility in our admissions requirements with regard to pass/fail grading policies.

NOTE: Completion of minimum requirements does not guarantee an invitation to interview or admission to our program. 

Marymount’s DPT Program does not accept students seeking to transfer nor do we accept applications from persons dismissed from any PT program.
