DegreeNow Adult Completion Initiative

Attention:  The DegreeNow Adult Completion Initiative ended last November; however, please read the following information concerning the BOG Adult Completion Degree:

 

Board of Governors Adult Completion Degree

Are you an adult student who:

  • Wishes to complete your college degree but life and work commitments have become your main priority
  • has previous college credits but no degree
  • has extensive work history or technical training you feel could qualify as college level credit, and/or
  • Is a veteran

 

What you already know may be worth college credit. Adults continually learn new skills in many situations-on the job, through travel, reading, volunteering and special interests. With a goal of preparing a more highly trained West Virginian citizenry to meet our workforce and civic needs and compete in the 21st-century job market with advanced and hands-on skills, West Virginia two year state colleges are reaching out with this integrated, statewide associate degree.

 

New River is here to help you attain your dream of completing college by offering this degree. This degree (click here to review requirements on page 101) can give you a jump start to an associate degree by completing a portfolio from prior work and life experiences. The portfolio process can validate your college level learning experiences and credentials as well as save precious time. The portfolio process is convenient, flexible and cost effective. If you feel you are a good candidate to prepare a work/life experience portfolio, schedule an appointment with the BOG degree program coordinator for an advising interview.

 

Students are eligible for admission to this program two years after high school graduation. Students must not hold any other degree from an accredited institution nor be enrolled simultaneously in another degree program. You can apply for admission here

 

There is no time like the present to get started on the completion of your college degree. Our student affairs professionals can help you get on the right track to see the completion of your degree happen. Contact the Board of Governors degree coordinator, Donna Lewis, at 304-647-6566 for more information.

Program Application and Admission

The Physical Therapist Assistant program is selected enrollment, meaning that students must apply to and be accepted before enrolling in any course with a PTHA prefix. Acceptance to New River and meeting the program application requirements do not guarantee admission.

Students must complete or be enrolled in the program's 30 credit hours of prerequisite courses when applying to the program. Equivalent pre-requisite courses may be completed at any college or university; New River students are not given preference during the selection process. All pre-requisite courses of the curriculum must be completed with a grade of "C" or higher by the end of the traditional fall semester prior to the start of a new class. Students must have an overall GPA of at least 2.75 for all college-level work. The application process also includes submission of a program application, documentation of at least 40 volunteer hours under the direction of a licensed physical therapist or physical therapist assistant. All program application materials including the program application and documentation of all completed volunteer hours must be submitted to the PTA Program by the student in a single envelope. Application materials may be hand delivered or mailed to the PTA Program and must be received on or before 5pm on October 31st. Students are not permitted to submit application materials to any other New River office. Faxed or e-mailed information will not be accepted.

Students must take all courses with a PTA prefix in sequence, with a minimum grade of C in all courses. The program includes a series of three off-campus clinical education experiences. Students are required to work during the days and hours of operation of their assigned facility. Every effort is made to place students in facilities that disrupt their domestic arrangements as little as possible, but the primary purpose of the clinical experiences is to ensure that each student gains the variety of experience required to become a competent entry-level physical therapist assistant. Expenses, including travel, food, and housing (if necessary), are the responsibility of the student.

Graduation from a physical therapist assistant education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical therapy Education (CAPTE), 111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314; phone 703-706-3245; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states.

Effective November 6, 2013, the Physical Therapist Assistant Program at New River Community & Technical College has been granted Candidate for Accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education of the American Physical Therapy Association (1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA, 22314; phone: 703-706-3245; email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). Candidacy is not an accreditation status nor does it assure eventual accreditation. Candidate for Accreditation is a pre-accreditation status of affiliation with the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education that indicates the program is progressing toward accreditation.

Student Advising

Students interested in the Physical Therapist Assistant Program are strongly encouraged to schedule an advising appointment with Stephanie Dotson, Program Director or Ron Moreland. Advising is essential to assuring accuracy of information, clarification of questions, and for scheduling required pre-requisite courses. Please call 304-929-3324 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to schedule an advising appointment.
