Following the testing policies of ETS, candidates may submit multiple sets of scores for consideration. All attempts, however, MUST be on file by the actual application deadline and reported officially by the test agency. This means that applicants must plan their testing appointments in accordance with our application deadline. Note that the minimum acceptable essay score is 3.5 without exception.
Those who retake the exam after submitting their initial applications should confirm with the DPT Admissions Office at email@example.com the attempt that they desired to be considered. Scores are only entered on the applicant tracking spreadsheet one time upon initial review. The office will not know that new scores exist without word from the candidate.
Beginning with 2013 admission, a personal interview is required for admission and will be granted on a competitive basis. The interviews are conducted in a group setting on the UNF campus in Jacksonville. Alternate dates and alternate interview methods (phone, Skype, etc.) are not available. Candidates are expected to plan accordingly. The program strives to post dates under the Important Dates chart in a timely manner to allow for this.
Recommendation letters are required at interview. However, the program will not be retrieve them from PTCAS or accept them prior to the interview; instead, they are to be submitted in person at the interview if one is selected for such. It is preferred that one (1) come from a course instructor or academic advisor and any others from licensed physical therapists. There is no recommendation form; we prefer them to be provided on organizational letterhead. You may have them sealed or open. Observation hours are required at interview. However, the program will not retrieve them from PTCAS or accept them prior tot he interview; instead, they are to be submitted in person at the interview if one is selected for such. It is strongly recommended that the observation hours come from a variety of settings and must be completed under the direct supervision of a licensed PT by the application deadline. There is no form for this; instead, a letter on organizational letterhead may be be presented at the interview.
Again, UNF has no requirement for documenting these items in PTCAS, though other institutions do so check with all programs to which you are submitting applications. See below for more details.
