Upcoming PTA Program Advising Workshops

Don’t believe all the rumors that you hear….come hear the truth!

A PTA Program Advising Session is an opportunity to look at program expectations and requirements, admission procedures and other information related to the PTA Program.  Additionally, an advising session will help you develop a strategy for making your application more competitive in the PTA program admission process. We are now happy to offer prospective student two options for accessing this information.

Option 1:  Watch an on-demand session….available 24/7/365 at the links below.  Contact information is included within the presentation for follow-up questions with an advisor.  Just follow the links below to access the pre-recorded Advising Session and/or a separately recorded overview of the 2020 application process.

Option 2: Prefer a face to face session?  Once the world returns to normal, come join a PTA program advisor for one of our scheduled live sessions.  (During the COVID19 Pandemic, please check the list below frequently.  Cancellations are posted as early as possible but can often occur at the last minute.  No reservations are necessary for the live sessions – just show up.  The information is the same as the recordings above so there’s no need to do both or to attend more than one session. During the session we will present general program information, application information, answer your questions and then individual advisors will be available – as needed – at the end of the meeting if you still have questions or need to have transcripts reviewed. From March 1 through the application deadline, the workshops will also help applicants prepare to submit their PTA Program application – helping you to know that your application is complete and will receive full consideration during the upcoming application process. (Note – application processing sessions will only be conducted from March 1 through June 1.  All remaining sessions will be general advising sessions only unless otherwise noted.)

Reminder: You are strongly encouraged to submit your PTA Program application as soon as your grades are posted in all of your prerequisite classes.

All meetings will be held in Bevill Health Room 708 (unless otherwise posted onsite).
