Consortium Colleges

You can apply for the PTA program at one of these six Connecticut Community Colleges:

  • Capital
  • Housatonic
  • Manchester
  • Naugatuck Valley
  • Northwestern
  • Tunxis.

Each college is part of a unique consortium that allows you to complete general education and prerequisite courses at the campus of your choice before finishing your core PTA classes at Naugatuck Valley. 

What's in it for you?

  • You'll meet even more students in your field.
  • You can take general education courses at your home campus to minimize travel to Waterbury.
  • You'll have access to statewide clinic-based internships, so you're more likely to find something close to home.
  • You'll have more access to job opportunities since our graduates are distributed around the state.
