To begin, click the "Create an Account" button on the PTCAS application homepage. Enter a username, password, security question, and valid contact information. All information is required, unless noted as optional. Review and accept the PTCAS terms and conditions, then click on the "Create My Account" button to activate a new account and unique PTCAS identification number. For your own security do not share your password or account information with anyone.
You are not permitted to create more than 1 PTCAS account per application cycle. Duplicate accounts will result in significant processing delays and problems with your transcripts and other application materials. PTCAS will delete duplicate accounts, including any documents associated with those accounts.
Once your account is created, use the filters on the screen to search for programs. You can also visit the PTCAS Directory for program admission requirements.
You must apply to at least 1 program before you can continue the application. Click the plus to apply to a particular program. You are encouraged to select all programs to which you will apply at this point, so the programs are aware of your interest and you can view the program-specific requirements.
You can choose to add or remove programs at any time before you submit your application. After you submit, you can only add new program and will not be able to delete or substitute program selections.
Review information on the application dashboard.
