D.P.T. Admission

D.P.T. Program Requirements for Admission

DPT Admission Process

Admission to ASU’s physical therapy program is selective and competitive. Meeting the baseline admission requirements for the College of Graduate Studies and the Physical Therapy Department does not guarantee admission to the physical therapy program.

The admission process occurs in two separate stages. The first stage application process is through the College of Graduate Studies. Applications are available August 1 for the following June cohort.  ALL application materials and the application fee are sent to:

College of Graduate Studies
ASU Station 11025
San Angelo, TX 76909-1025

Once applicant files are complete, they are forwarded to the Physical Therapy Department for review. Applicants are then notified with a letter stating that the applicant has cleared Stage I processing and will need to submit an additional $30 physical therapy processing fee (check/money order made payable to Angelo State University) along with a contact confirmation form (Stage II Physical Therapy Processing Form). Checks or money orders must include name, address and phone number.
