    Navigating the Application

    Once you enter the application form, use the internal navigation bars, hotlinks, and options on the horizontal menu bar at the top of the application screen. Do not use the navigation bars of the browser. Do not refresh pages or you will be logged out of the application.


    At times, PTCAS will use a bulk e-mail process to contact applicants. Some e-mail providers use filters to prevent users from receiving "spam" (unsolicited, junk email). E-mail filters may interpret an e-mail from PTCAS or a PT program as "spam" and automatically delete a message to you about the status of your PTCAS application. To avoid missing important PTCAS e-mails, turn the "spam" or "junk" e-mail filters off during the application cycle. If your e-mail provider does not allow you to turn the filter off, you may have access to a "junk mail file" that archives all messages identified as sent to multiple addresses. Periodically check your spam or junk e-mail files for PTCAS or PT program related messages.

    If you do not currently have an e-mail address or are unable to turn off the spam or junk filters as described, please establish a new e-mail account. Below are a few free e-mail services for you to consider. (This is not a comprehensive list and does not reflect an endorsement or guaranty of reliable service).
