Application Process

Those interested in applying to High Point University’s DPT program must submit an application via PTCAS. The Office of Graduate Admissions along with the Department of Physical Therapy Admissions Committee will mutually determine upon candidate credential review who will be invited for an interview. After the interview, students who have been accepted will be invited to join the DPT program.

With the rolling admissions process, those who have been invited to join the program will be given a deposit deadline, which will generally be 2 weeks, to decide to join the program and confirm their acceptance with a deposit. After the deadline, a place in the program is not guaranteed but neither is the candidate disqualified unless the class reaches its maximum size, in which case, the candidate will be placed on a wait list. This process will continue until the class is filled. There will be no limit to the wait list.
