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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 by the deadline and must be submitted to the UNF Graduate School on organizational letterhead. These will not be collected or accepted from PTCAS. It is required that one (1) come from a course instructor or academic advisor and the other from a licensed physical therapist. There is no recommendation form; we require them to be provided on organizational letterhead. You may have them sealed and mailed or uploaded as .pdf files in myWings. Observation hours are not required to be documented to the program. However, it is strongly recommended that the 80 minimum observation hours come from a variety of settings and must be completed under the direct supervision of a licensed PT by the application deadline. Candidates will be asked at interview to speak about their observation experiences.
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.
Questions regarding actual enrollment in the program, and not regarding admission requirements, should be directed to Dr. Mary Lundy at email@example.com.
Questions regarding admission should be directed to Ms. Beth Dibble at firstname.lastname@example.org.
