The Department of Physical Therapy at Husson University participates in the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (PTCAS). PTCAS allows PT applicants to use a single Web-based application and one set of materials to apply to multiple PT programs. Applicants must follow all PTCAS and program-specific instructions when applying to graduate Physical Therapy programs which use the PTCAS application system.
Graduate student applicants applying for fall 2015 entry into the three-year DPT program must apply online through PTCAS, the Central Application Service for Physical Therapy programs. PTCAS applications for Fall 2015 will be accepted at www.ptcas.org beginning July 1, 2014. Please apply early as it is time consuming to collect your supporting application materials.
Husson University has adopted a rolling admissions process. Completed PTCAS applications will be reviewed starting on January 20, 2015 and will continue until the close of applications on April 1, 2015. Later applications will be considered for admissions on a space available basis. Accepted applicants will be notified and invited to attend an information session (or one of two information sessions) during April or May 2015. Official transcripts showing evidence of completion of a Bachelor's degree must be sent to Husson's Graduate Admissions Office by the program's start date in August.
