How to Apply

Traditional Application Process

The department of physical therapy at The University of Findlay participates in the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service, known as PTCAS.

Applicants seeking admission into the traditional curriculum must apply online using the PTCAS application. The PT program application deadline is Nov. 15. All PTCAS materials should be submitted six weeks prior to the application deadline, Nov. 15, to allow time for processing by PTCAS. There is a $45 fee to apply.

PTCAS is the only application needed for consideration into the traditional physical therapy program. There is no need to apply to The University of Findlay prior to acceptance. Upon acceptance, successful applicants will then be required to submit a copy of all official college transcripts to The University of Findlay.

The PTCAS will provide a copy of the observation hour verification form upon request. However, all applicants must submit their hour verification electronically.​

Weekend (PTA to DPT) Application Process

Admission to the physical therapy program is a two-step process:

  • Applicants must first apply to The University of Findlay using our online graduate application. Applicants must send official college/university transcripts to the Office of Admissions.

  • Upon completion of the general University of Findlay Application, a separate physical therapy program application along with the program recommendation forms will be emailed directly to you for completion. These supplemental materials need to be completed for consideration into the weekend doctor of physical therapy curriculum (this process should be started six weeks prior to the May 1 deadline).
