Why study Pre-Health Sciences : Pre-Physical Therapy?
Clermont College offers a Pre-Health Sciences track in Occupational Therapy. This track provides students with an Associates Degree program that is specifically designed for students to transition to the Health Sciences Pre-Physical Therapy major within the College of Allied Health Sciences at the UC Clifton campus.
This associates degree program provides students with a comprehensive background in the basic sciences which is then combined with applied studies in exercise physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, sports and wellness puts most graduates in a position to be competitive graduate school candidates.
This program is open to all students with a high school diploma or GED and the desire to succeed in college. Although admission is open, students accepted into the program must meet the academic standards of the program to advance to upper levels of study.
As a first-year student, you will complete an English assessment and a mathematics placement test if you have not obtained the minimum ACT/SAT score required for exemption. These assessments do not affect your admission; however, the results are essential for your proper placement in classes. You must complete these assessments before you register for English or mathematics courses.
As a transfer or transition student, an Academic Advisor will determine if any English or mathematics assessment is necessary due to previous standardized tests (ACT/SAT) or coursework.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for physical therapist is expected to grow 22% by 2028 (much faster than the national average) and the current median pay is $89,440 per year.

Academic Writing Center (AWC) - The AWC can help with any writing assignment for any course and at any stage of the writing process. The AWC is not course-specific and can help with discipline-specific documents, as well as non-course-based writing. Schedule a one-on-one appointment with a trained writing tutor or submit your paper through email for feedback.
Math & Science Support Center (MASS) - The MASS Center offers virtual study tables for many undergraduate mathematics and science courses. Study tables provide a collaborative learning space so that students can learn from their peers who have excelled (the table leader) as well as their fellow class members attending the study table. No appointment is necessary for these scheduled group tutoring sessions.
Peer Tutoring - Peer tutoring sessions are one-on-one with a subject-specific tutor to answer questions in more than 300 undergraduate courses including subjects such as math, science, languages, business and writing.

Schedule one-hour sessions as often as once per week.
Success Skills Workshops – Success Skills Workshops are free one-hour sessions that focus on skills students need to be successful in college (study skills, note-taking, motivation, etc.). While there is no shortcut to success, the goal of the workshops is to empower students to identify and apply academic habits and soft skills through a deeper understanding and purpose of them. When you RSVP for a workshop, you will be able to register for the upcoming workshops one at a time and up to nine days prior to the workshop date.
