Keep moving forward to the career you want. Apply to the Wingate University Doctor of Physical Therapy program.
Physical therapy is a competitive field, and you’ve worked hard over the past few years to prepare yourself for an advanced degree. Not only that, but you can’t wait to make a difference in people’s lives as a physical therapist.
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.
The next PTCAS application cycle opens July 3, 2019 and the deadline is April 1, 2020 for our 2021 cohort, which begins January 2021.
Apply early, plan early
Here’s a tip we pass along to all applicants: Try not to wait until the last minute to apply. We participate in the PTCAS early decision program and let early applicants know 15 months before classes start if they’ve been accepted.
For our 2020 cohort, we began accepting applications on July 3, 2018. Students who applied before August 15, 2018 as an Early Decision Applicant were notified by September 25 whether or not they'd been accepted.
Sure, those dates have come and gone, but keep this in mind when you apply or if you’re thinking about applying later. Our rolling application process means that we review applications when we receive them. The earlier you apply, the better your chances are of being one of the applicants to be admitted into the program.
If you still have general questions about the program, or want to see how our compares to other doctor of physical therapy programs, please reach out to us by email or call us at 704-233-8358. Have questions about admissions? Call Ms. Natalie Clark at 704-233-8674.
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.
