Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE)
Graduation from a physical therapist assistant education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states.
Rasmussen College – Ocala is seeking accreditation of a new Physical Therapist Assistant education program from CAPTE. The program is planning to submit an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage, on June 1, 2019. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the technical phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in technical courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.
Candidacy Contingency Plan:
Rasmussen College has a contingency plan in place should the Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program not receive Candidacy for Accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE). Students enrolled in the PTA program are not eligible to start technical courses until Candidacy for Accreditation has been granted by CAPTE. If candidacy is not achieved, students will be notified of the program status and advised of other programs offered at Rasmussen College.
Accreditation Contingency Plan
Rasmussen College has a contingency plan in place should the PTA program not receive Accreditation from CAPTE. Students who are enrolled in the PTA program will be notified if an adverse decision on accreditation is received by CAPTE, and at that point no new students will be enrolled into the program until accreditation can be achieved.
Students enrolled in the PTA program at the time of an adverse decision on accreditation by CAPTE will be offered the option of completing their current coursework. Students will have the option of remaining in the PTA program until a final decision regarding the PTA program accreditation status is received from CAPTE. Students not opting to stay in the program will receive assistance to identify an accredited PTA program for consideration of transfer.
