The DPT Program has transitioned to PTCAS (Physical Therapy Centralized Application Service), an online application service.
Upon receipt and audit of the application materials, the applications will be promptly reviewed by the Physical Therapy Program Admissions Committee. The most qualified applicants will then be invited for an interview with the admissions committee. The interview is a very important part of the application process. Interviewed applicants will be assessed on traits such as professional motivation, knowledge of the Physical Therapy profession, academic performance trends, interpersonal skills, diversity of life and professional experiences, integrity, and orientation to health care provider role.
CMU provides students with disabilities reasonable accommodation to participate in educational programs, activities or services. Students with disabilities requiring accommodations to participate in class activities or meet course requirements are requested to indicate their needs in writing at the time they are offered admission into the program. Students who apply for admission to the Physical Therapy Program will be evaluated individually for their capability to perform in the role of a Physical Therapy as described by the American Academy of Physical Therapy.
Candidates will be notified regarding their admission status during the spring semester. Those accepting an invitation to join the programs will begin their studies in May.
