Is LSC Military-Friendly? 

Lake Superior College is successfully removing barriers for military veterans. The Physical Therapist Assistant–Military Bridge program eliminates time and financial barriers for both veterans and taxpayers, who would otherwise pay both for the initial military training and for the re-training outside the military, through veterans’ federal education benefits.

Can I apply if I was dishonorably discharged?

If honorably discharged from the service, a copy of DD form 214 (Certificate of Release of Discharge from Active Duty). Admission applications must be received within 1 year of discharge to ensure the preservation of clinical skill competencies. Applications received after 1 year may be considered if continued employment as a physical therapy technician/specialist can be verified.
