How long do you have to go to school to be a physical therapist assistant?

The Herzing University physical therapist assistant program takes 20 months to complete as scheduled full-time.

After earning your associate degree you’ll need to sit for the NPTE-PTA exam to earn your certification/license and truly become a physical therapist assistant. There are typically 4 test dates per year – you may view future exam dates for the NPTE-PTA here.

If the timing is right, you may be able to earn your degree and get certified in around 2 years.
