In January 2020, APTA decided to eliminate early decision as an option for applicants and participating DPT education programs in PTCAS beginning with the 2020-2021 admissions cycle.
All applicants must apply through PTCAS.
Do not begin your application before the new cycle opens in June. Any information you input will be deleted.
The UTC DPT Program admissions review involves a holistic application assessment, considering both academic (GPA and GRE) and non-academic factors. This is a change from previous application cycles (prior to fall 2023 admissions). Applicants should pay close attention to both PTCAS and program-specific questions and answer all aspects of the application carefully and completely.
Our program does not interview candidates. We enroll 36 students each fall.
There is no minimum verbal or quantitative GRE score required for applicants, but we require a minimum 3.0 analytical writing score. We require a minimum of a 3.2 for both GPAs. The following table provides data for entering classes over the last three years. This reflects students who matriculated into the program, including those who were initially wait-listed but received an offer at a later date due to an opening in the program. Students who declined an offer or chose to attend another program after accepting an offer from UTC are not included.
