Admissions: Application forms

In the summer of 2008, the American Physical Therapy Association joined other health professional organizations in making available a computerized application service for prospective students pursuing a degree in physical therapy. This new system enables students to apply, using one common application, to all of the Physical Therapy programs that have elected to utilize this service.

Rutgers SHP is very excited about providing you with this new, updated, online service!
