You can see yourself as a Doctor of Physical Therapy. But to make this happen, you need to apply to our program. First, review our admission requirements to be sure you have everything you need. Then apply to our DPT program via PTCAS.

Submit a Tuition Deposit

If you’re admitted to the program, we make a personal call to share the good news. We follow up the call with a letter mailed to your preferred address.

To confirm that you accept the admission offer, we require a $1,500 non-refundable deposit within 30 days of the initial acceptance notification. This deposit is applied to tuition in the initial semester of study.

The expiration date of the offer of admission will be stated in the letter we mail to you. Failure to pay the $1,500 deposit by the expiration date stated in the letter will forfeit your place in the program.

There are no waivers or exceptions to any of these requirements. The Wingate University Doctor of Physical Therapy program offers no advanced placement or any other type of transfer credit from any prior enrollment in any health sciences, medical or related program. A qualified applicant previously enrolled in another CAPTE-accredited DPT program can be considered for admission only after consultation with the director of the former program of study.
