Application Process FAQs - Physical Therapy

Do you interview candidates for your program and what is the format?

Yes. We interview applicants for our early offer program the first week in November. Regular offer interviews are held in mid-December. Interviews consist of multiple stations in both a group and individual format where applicants have the opportunity to interact with many of our faculty and clinical partners.

Where else can I get tips on applying?

We hold Open House Workshops typically in late spring through summer leading up to the application cycle deadline. Questions will be answered at these workshops and tips on how to apply and strengthen your application will be shared.

To attend a workshop, please RSVP in advance. The event is free and recommended for prospective applicants who are within two years applying.

If I am re-applying, what do I need to do?

Students will be required to send in all new materials, transcripts, PTCAS application, fees and any other required documents. Records of past applicants are not kept on file at UT Health San Antonio or in PTCAS.

Please note that the Department of Physical Therapy does an annual review of the admission requirements. Be sure to check our website for updated requirements, information, and plan accordingly for the application cycle which you anticipate applying for. We recommend annual attendance to the Open House Workshop event in case there are changes in the application process from year to year.
