Supplemental/Custom Requirements

  • The PTCAS web application may be only one step in the physical therapy admissions process. In addition to the PTCAS application, PT programs may require you to send a supplemental application, fee, and other materials directly to that institution. Supplemental applications and materials may be requested by the PT program, graduate admissions office, and/or the university.

    Examples of supplemental materials include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • graduate school application
    • course prerequisite worksheet
    • supplemental fee
    • official GRE scores
    • results of a physical
    • immunization records

    Review the PTCAS Directory or contact the institution directly to obtain supplemental instructions or application.

    Supplemental Deadlines

    The deadline for supplemental applications and materials may be the same as the program's PTCAS deadline or a later date. Review the PTCAS Directory or contact the institution directly to obtain supplemental instructions or application.

    School-specific (Custom) Questions on PTCAS Application

    Some institutions require school-specific (custom) questions as part of the PTCAS application. PTCAS will automatically prompt you to respond to any school-specific questions when you apply to programs with this requirement. You will not be able to submit your PTCAS application until you answer the required questions for all of your designated programs. Your designated programs will not receive your responses to questions for other programs. Programs may also require you to submit supplemental applications or materials in addition to the PTCAS application. To view school-specific questions and supplemental requirements for programs, visit the PTCAS Directory.
