DPT How to Apply

Duke DPT Applicants, please note:
  • All applications must be submitted through Physical Therapy Centralized Application Service (PTCAS).

  • All Transcripts, including World Education Service transcript evaluations, must also be submitted directly to PTCAS.
  • All GRE scores must be sent to the Duke DPT GRE Code 5473 (if scores are sent to another code they will NOT be received).

  • After an application has been submitted and verified by PTCAS, the applicant will receive an email from the Duke DPT Admissions Office with instructions on how to pay the $50 application fee.

Key dates

  • July 1: Application opens

  • October 17: Standard deadline

What to expect

  • After an application has been submitted to PTCAS, it can take four to five weeks for PTCAS to verify the application.
  • It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that their application gets verified by PTCAS. The application will not be considered “received” by the Duke DPT Admissions Committee until it has been verified by PTCAS.
  • Duke DPT operates under a rolling admissions process, meaning we begin reviewing applications when the cycle opens and our admissions cycle is not closed until the class is full.
