Admissions Process

Elon’s DPT program enrolls a new class of students each January. To apply for the class entering in January 2023, visit PTCAS.org. Elon does not have a supplemental application. An interview is required for admission.

Admission Schedule

The Elon DPT program accepts applications on a rolling basis starting July 2021. Please submit your application as soon as possible for consideration.

The admissions committee reviews applications from September through early spring, when final interviews are conducted. Most interview offers are extended via email by mid-December.

Deadline Schedule for the Class of 2025 (enrolling January 2023)

Early Assurance:  August 16, 2021

Priority (Soft) Deadline: November 1, 2021

Final Deadline:  January 17, 2022

Applications submitted in the current 2021-22 admissions cycle are for enrollment in January 2023.

Early Assurance

Elon’s Early Assurance option – while not binding – is intended for candidates whose #1 choice is Elon and would plan to enroll, if admitted. Qualified Early Assurance candidates are invited to a dedicated interview date in the fall. Last year, over 80% of our Early Assurance interviewees received an offer of admission. Candidates are notified of their admission decision within a couple weeks of interview and have until January 15, 2022 to accept or decline their admission.

To apply under the Early Assurance deadline, (1) submit your Elon application through PTCAS by August 16; and (2) answer “yes” to our PTCAS supplemental question about Early Assurance.

Application Checklist

Completed applications submitted to PTCAS must include the following:

  • Official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate studies
  • Official GRE scores (Elon’s PTCAS code is 7617.)
  • Three letters of recommendation (sent to PTCAS)

Elon does not have a supplemental application.

An application is considered “received” by Elon after PTCAS verifies it. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that PTCAS verifies their application.

About 1-2 weeks after Elon receives an application, we email the applicant with instructions to create their Elon Application Status Page. It is the applicant’s responsibility to review the progress of their application by monitoring their status page. IMPORTANT: A status page is only available after our office downloads your application from PTCAS.

For evaluation, all documents must be received. If you have any questions about missing documents, contact PTCAS first. After speaking with PTCAS, if you still have questions, please contact the Office of Graduate Admissions at (336) 278-7600 or gradadm@elon.edu. The Elon DPT Admissions FAQs may also address some of your questions.
