APPLYING TO THE DPT PROGRAM
Arkansas State University's DPT program subscribes to the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (PTCAS). applicants for admission to the ASU DPT program MUST apply online using the PTCAS application. IN ADDITION, students must also apply to the ASU Graduate School.
Deadline for submitting applications to PTCAS and the Graduate School is February 1st.
To learn more about the PTCAS application process and to get started, please go to the PTCAS website at www.ptcas.org. Information about the ASU Graduate School application is included as supplemental material on the PTCAS website. If you encounter difficulty with PTCAS, please contact their Customer Service.
Once a student has submitted an application through PTCAS, the transcript information is verified by PTCAS. this process takes time and depends both on the efficiency of PTCAS and the speed with which your schools respond to the inquiries from PTCAS. ASU will accept completed, verified applications from PTCAS until March 1st. If PTCAS has not completed the verification process by March 1st, the application will not be considered, even if it was submitted by the February 1st deadline. Therefore, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications well before the deadline to ensure that the verification process will be completed by the deadline.
The Department of Physical Therapy will begin reviewing applications after March 1st.
* The GRE is not required to apply.

Students who have attended one or more of the ASU campuses (i.e. Newport, Beebe, etc.) must still request transcripts from them separately to be sent to ASU Jonesboro. ASU campuses are independent of each other in regards to transcripts and can only be verified by the campus where the courses were actually taken.
