Florida SouthWestern State College is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist assistant education program from CAPTE. The program is planning to submit an Application for Approval of Substantive Change on June 10, 2024. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted for Accreditation status. Achievement of Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the technical phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in technical courses until Accreditation status has been achieved.
