As a program, we are aware the unique challenges COVID-19 restrictions have placed on our applicants. Therefore, the UF DPT program has elected to make the following amendments for the 2020-2021 application requirements:
1. We will accept up to 2 science/math prerequisite course Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grades for any courses taken during Spring and Summer 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic. The lecture and lab of the same course number is considered one course.
Please be aware that taking science/math prerequisite pass/fail courses has the potential to impact the competitiveness of your application. Please address your circumstances in the application essays.
2. Official transcripts should be obtained whenever possible prior to application deadline. If this is not possible, we will accept unofficial transcripts. Before final admission decisions are made, official transcripts will need to be submitted.
3. At-home GRE testing will be accepted. We encourage students to take the at home GRE exam if at all possible.
4. We require 1 year of PTA experience prior to Sept 1 of the year of application, however this year we realize that many PTAs and PTs are getting laid off. Thus, if you held a PTA license, were employed by September 1st of 2019, and regularly employed prior to COVID pandemic, you will be considered having met the year of work experience. Please address your situation in your essays.
