Early Decision

APPLY EARLY! Many PT programs have multiple deadline dates (i.e., preferred, priority, or early decision) or operate on a rolling admissions process. The deadline indicates when your materials must arrive at PTCAS (and not at the program). You should e-submit your application as soon as it's complete and NOT wait for PTCAS to receive all of your transcripts or references.

Disclaimer - This summary information is provided as a service to applicants. APTA, PTCAS, and participating programs strive to maintain accurate and current information on all PTCAS web pages; but are not responsible for any errors or omissions. Admission requirements are subject to change.
