Academic Update

  • If you e-submit your PTCAS application before your summer or fall 2013 grades are available, you must enter your updated courses online during the Academic Update (AU) and arrange for your updated transcript to be sent to PTCAS as soon as it is available.  PTCAS will contact you by email when you can begin to enter your updated fall grades and any new planned/in-progress 2014 courses.

    E-submit your updated courses as soon as you have an unofficial grade report from the institution and do NOT wait for the registrar to release your official transcript. You can only update your coursework ONCE during the Academic Update.

    Important Academic Update Dates

    December 12, 2013 – The Academic Update opens. You cannot make edits to your coursework section until the AU window is open to you.

    January 15, 2014 Priority deadline to submit your updated courses and transcripts to PTCAS. PTCAS will continue to accept updated transcripts after the priority deadline date has passed and through February 15.

    February 14, 2014 The Academic Update closes. You cannot edit your courses after this date. PTCAS will no longer accept AU transcripts. If your AU transcripts will not be available from your college/university's registrar until after February 14, email the PT program to determine if you may mail or fax an unofficial grade report directly to the program. (Do NOT send unofficial transcripts or grade reports to PTCAS).
