Policy on Acceptance of Transfer Students into EWU DPT Program:
The EWU Doctor of Physical Therapy Program does not accept students who wish to transfer into the program from another DPT program. Students who wish to complete their DPT education at EWU are encouraged to apply for admission to the program according to the application process, and if accepted, will matriculate at the beginning of the program. Rationale: Doctor of Physical Therapy curricula vary widely in terms of content, order, and timing; it is therefore difficult to assess the didactic and clinical expertise of a student who wishes to transfer into the program and receive some credit for DPT courses already completed at another institution.
We actively recruit potential students from all areas. Preference is not given for in state or Eastern Washington University students, instead we seek the best students possible. Applications are made available through PTCAS each July.
We participate in PTCAS early decision. Our general application deadline for the Fall of 2017 is November 1, 2016. Please submit an application through EWU Graduate Studies http://www.ewu.edu/grad/graduate-programs in addition to PTCAS by that date.
ALL COMMUNICATION WITH APPLICANTS IS DONE THROUGH E-MAIL EXCEPT FOR THE FINAL DISPOSITION WHICH IS SENT VIA US MAIL. PLEASE CHECK YOUR E-MAIL FREQUENTLY DURING THIS TIME
During the processing phase of our recruitment; applications are evaluated and rated on the following criteria:
Invitations are sent out to the top applicants to join our incoming fall class usually by the end of January
Statistics for applicants invited for Fall 2016 We have not filled our class, these are invited applicants only.
A list of alternates is kept which we draw on until the class of 38 is filled. This list is maintained throughout the summer until the first day of class. Occasionally we have students who commit to the program who later change their mind about attending.
With the implementation of wireless classrooms, The Department of Physical Therapy has approved a requirement for all students to have laptops.
