Online Computer Administered Profile (CAP) – Saturday, April 17, 2021!

Each spring, the Department of Physical Therapy invites the top applicants to write the CAP as part of the admissions process. Invitations to the CAP  were emailed to selected applicants last week. Our CAP will be administered online and it is scheduled for Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 2:00 PM ET. Applicants are encouraged to review the CAP FAQs.

The CAP is a written examination designed to assess personal characteristics and attributes, life experiences, knowledge of the physical therapy profession, and critical thinking/problem-solving skills. The CAP is not a personal profile nor is it an MCAT-type exam for which one can study. Typical questions will explore understanding of the profession and ability to problem solve. The CAP is two hours long and features a series of short and long answer questions. Admission decisions are based on a combination of the sub-GPA weighted at 60% and the CAP score, weighted at 40%. To learn more about the admissions process, please visit our How to Apply page. For more information on the CAP test, please review our CAP FAQs.

We wish our applicants the very best of luck in the admissions process!
