AUGUST 17 - Early Decision Deadline for Applicants
SEPTEMBER 25 – Deadline for Programs to Submit Decisions to PTCAS for Early Decision Applicants
Some programs offer "early decision" (ED) status through PTCAS. The
early Decision program is a binding option for applicants who have
decided that a particular PT program is their first choice and that they
will enroll if accepted. As an early decision applicant, you can apply
to only 1 PTCAS program until a decision on your application has been
made by your early decision program.
The early decision application deadline is August 17, 2015. In
addition to completing the PTCAS application, you must arrange for PTCAS
to receive all of your official United States transcripts and fee by August 17.
Early decision candidates must take the GRE® and request scores by no
later than July 31, if the GRE is required by the program. If your
application, transcripts, or fee arrive after the early decision
deadline, PTCAS will automatically change your file from early decision
to regular status.
You may be offered early admission, denied admission, or deferred to regular applicant status.
- If you are offered admission as an early decision applicant,
you are obligated to accept the offer and you will not be permitted to
apply to additional PTCAS programs.
- If, however, you are denied admission as an early decision
applicant, you may apply to other PTCAS institutions for an additional
PTCAS institutions will make admission decisions on early decision applicants by September 25, 2015.
