Application Procedures

The Professional Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Nova Southeastern University - Tampa Bay participates in the Physical Therapist Centralized Application Service (PTCAS) for admission. The PTCAS may take up to 6 weeks to verify your application and supporting documents. Therefore, early application is highly recommended.

Once your PTCAS application has been verified and received by Nova Southeastern University, a link to the supplemental application will be emailed to you within 5 business days. Please follow the instructions to complete and submit the NSU supplemental application and fee by the specific deadline. Be sure to check your junk/spam folder for the application link and if you do not receive it, please email Jeffrey Jurkas at  Please note, applications cannot be reviewed until the supplemental application has been completed and received. 

Once NSU receives the PTCAS application, GRE scores, the NSU supplemental application, and $50 application fee, your file will be reviewed by our admissions counselor. Upon confirmation that the application is complete, and the applicant meets the minimum admission requirements, the application will be sent to the Committee on Admissions for review.  Selected applicants will be invited for an interview.  An invitation for an interview should not be construed by the applicant as evidence of acceptance.
