For September 2011 admission, applicants must have completed an appropriate bachelor’s degree with high academic standing from a recognized university, with a mid-“B” average or better in the final year (i.e., five full-course equivalents at the senior level). Please note that the mid-B average is a minimum requirement, and a higher GPA based on the last ten full courses completed will be required to be competitive in the admission process.

Students taking programs that lead to degrees in any discipline (e.g., Science, Arts, Engineering) may apply for admission during the fourth year of university study, provided that they have fulfilled the prerequisite course requirements as outlined. Students applying in the final year of a four-year degree program must provide proof of completion of the degree requirements prior to enrolment in the Physical Therapy program, or no later than June 30, 2011.
