Applications to the UWM DPT program are reviewed in two phases.  The Early Priority Admission phase applies to all qualified applications received by August 15.  Applications undergo a holistic review, considering all factors from the application (GPA, GRE, letters of recommendation, essay responses, experiences, observation hours, leadership, and extra-curricular activities). 

Offers in the Early Priority Admission phase will be made by October 15. 

Qualified and verified applications received after August 15 will be considered in the Rolling Admission phase.

The firm application deadline is November 1, but applicants are encouraged to apply early as offers will be made on a rolling basis after the Early Priority Admission phase.  

The program will retain a wait list for strong applicants who did not receive an offer. This list will be active until the class matriculates.

Summary of Important Dates:

August 15th     Early Priority Admission application deadline      
October 15th          Early Priority offers made
November 1st     Rolling Admission application deadline  


Note:  To be considered eligible for review, an applicant should have no more than 2 outstanding prerequisites to complete. An applicant's intent to complete outstanding prerequisites should be reflected as "Planned" in the Coursework section. Priority will be given to applicants who have met all admission requirements at the time of application.
