2021–22 application changes due to COVID-19

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the IU PT Admissions Committee is making the following changes to application requirements for the 2021–22 application cycle:

  1. Acceptance of online labs for prerequisite courses completed during 2020 and 2021. These will be accepted for any application year.
  2. The recommended minimum number of observation hours is 40. However, if applicants meet all other application requirements but do not meet the minimum 40 hours of observation, we will still accept the application.  We understand that gaining observation hours during a pandemic has been difficult. Following application submission, alternative solutions to observation hours may be provided. These alternatives will afford the applicant an opportunity to better understand the scope of physical therapy practice, which is the ultimate goal of observation.
