To Apply for the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program:

  • External Applicants (not currently enrolled at SHU): Please go to the Physical Therapy Centralized Application Service https://portal.ptcas.org/ to apply. 
    Please note that if applying through PTCAS, all application materials need to be mailed directly to this organization and the address and instructions will be emailed to you from this service once you submit your application online. When applying through PTCAS, please indicate code 7001 to have your GREs sent to Liaison International.  GREs are recommended, not required.
  • Current SHU Undergraduate Students ONLY: Please go to the SHU Graduate DPT application to apply. Fill out the account creation form then continue to the DPT application.
    Please note once you submit the SHU application, you will receive an email with a link to your student portal to submit your letters of recommendation and resume as well as a link for your SHU transcript request form. If you took courses outside of SHU, you need to request a second set of official transcripts be sent to the Office of Graduate Admissions.  Your undergraduate file needs to remain intact, so you need to request another set of transcripts for your graduate file.

Once the Office of Graduate Admissions receives your completed application (PTCAS or SHU), The Physical Therapy Admissions Committee will review your file.

Completing your application, requesting materials and initial review may take you more time than you anticipate, so please apply very early, do not wait for the final deadline.
