PTCAS applicants to physical therapist programs agree to abide by certain rules and requirements.
PT applicants are expected to act professionally in all of their dealings with PTCAS and the physical therapist education programs. Applicants are expected to properly follow instructions and meet deadlines. Responsibility, respect, good judgment, and cooperation are qualities valued by the physical therapist profession; applicants are expected to demonstrate these qualities beginning with the application process.
The American Council of Academic
Physical Therapy (ACAPT), a component of APTA, approved a set of admission
traffic rules for PT education programs and applicants. The rules are effective beginning in the 2016-2017 admissions
cycle and available to the public on the ACAPT website.
While all PT programs and applicants are expected to
abide by these rules, APTA and PTCAS cannot comment on or enforce them. Please contact ACAPT directly with questions
about these rules at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants must certify the following statements before they can submit a completed PTCAS application. An applicant's certification of this statement on the PTCAS application serves the same purpose as a legal signature and is binding.
