Application Instructions

Georgia State’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program uses PTCAS to receive transcripts and to calculate GPA. Please be aware that all coursework and grades that an applicant wants to be considered need to be included on the transcript(s) sent to PTCAS at the time of application submission. PTCAS does not re-verify coursework or grades submitted after an application is submitted until the Fall Academic Update. Example: Applicants submitting their applications under early decision submit early (before summer grades are typically released). Any coursework completed after an application is submitted will not be considered, as it won’t be verified by PTCAS.
