The Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Florida participates in the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service, known as PTCAS. To learn more about the PTCAS application process, please visit the PTCAS web site at www.ptcas.org. The program requirements and instructions for applying can be found below.
Applicants must meet all University, College and Program requirements (described below) to become part of the applicant pool. Applications are accepted through the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (PTCAS) . The admission deadline is November 1st of the year prior to your entry term. Applications are accepted once a year and admitted students begin the program the following fall semester. Since the program is an entry-level clinical program, it is only open to those who have not yet completed clinical training in the field.
Please click here for a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Applicants are required to take all three sections of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), General Test, including the quantitative, verbal and analytical writing sections. Minimum scores of 146 on the verbal portion, 144 on the quantitative portion and a 3.5 on the analytical writing portion on the GRE are required.
If the exam is taken more than once, the highest overall test performance from the best single test date is used in making admissions decisions. Scores from different test administrations are not combined. Official GRE scores must be sent to UF’s Program via PTCAS (code 7731)
GRE scores must be received by the program no later than the application deadline.
Current annual tuition and fees are $22,721.72 for Florida residents and $31,961.72 for non-Florida residents, payable in two installments (fall and spring). Tuition and fees are subject to change. Additional information regarding payment dates and methods is available at The Office for Student Financial Affairs.
In addition to tuition and fees, students are responsible for lab fees, books, and expenses incurred with clinical internship experiences, both full-time and integrated. These may include housing, food, transportation, and related professional expenses. Costs will vary depending upon the location of the internship site, but students should be prepared financially for possible full-time internships outside the state of Florida.
