Admissions

To be considered for admission to the Professional Program in Physical Therapy, you must complete the application procedure for the PT Division’s Professional Program.

Once you are accepted to the PT Professional Program, you must complete ALL the pre-professional (prerequisite) courses BEFORE starting the professional courses.

The University of Kentucky Physical Therapy Program has chosen to participate in the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (PTCAS) to facilitate the admissions process. Applicants to the program can begin their PTCAS application on July 1, 2017. The PT program application deadline is December 1, 2017. To learn more about the PTCAS application process, please visit the PTCAS website at www.ptcas.org in June.

In order to apply to the UK Physical Therapy Program, you must access the PTCAS and also complete the Supplemental Application unique to the UK program. The Supplemental Application is available in July as well.  If you are taking courses in the fall of 2017, it would be best for you to submit the Supplemental Application after you have access to an unofficial transcript from the fall semester.  Your fall semester grades can be reviewed in a more timely manner if you upload them to the supplemental application.  The deadline for the supplemental app is January 2, 2018. You should only apply to the Professional Program in Physical Therapy, College of Health Sciences, University of Kentucky through the PTCAS process and the UK PT Program sites.

Do not apply to the University of Kentucky Admissions Office or the Graduate School.


** If you have questions or problems with the supplemental application, contact Allison Burton.  Students who are applying as University Scholars (in your junior year, but on track to graduate by May of 2018) should link to the University Scholars form, complete it and upload it with your supplemental application to Allison Burton at arrich2@uky.edu or mail to:
