The Department of Physical Therapy at Georgia State University will participate in the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service, known as PTCAS, beginning July 2014. Applicants applying to the entry-level doctor of physical therapist education program will apply online using the PTCAS application.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy program is an entry-level professional program for the student who holds a baccalaureate degree in any field of study. The degree must be completed prior to matriculation into the DPT program and should be in a student’s area of interest. The admissions process begins early July. Only applications complete and verified by the appropriate deadline will be reviewed.
