The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program currently operates via a consortium arrangement among the Graduate Center of CUNY (the degree-granting institution) and the College of Staten Island and Hunter College campus programs. We are beginning a transition whereby the College of Staten Island and Hunter College will each assume degree-granting authority. The first step in the transition will take place at Hunter College. On July 16, 2012, the Board of Regents of the New York State Education Department granted approval for Hunter College to grant the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. This will become effective for students enrolled in the Class of 2016 (beginning June 2013).
