  • Official GRE scores (Elon’s PTCAS code is 7617.)

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 his/her application by monitoring his/her 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.
