PTA Program Application


Both the On-Campus and the Online Physical Therapist Assistant programs are selective. Each program accepts 20 applicants every year. Applicants are ranked based on the following selection criteria: GPA in the Prerequisite Courses (65%), Admissions Exam Score (20%), Letters of Recommendations (15%), New Mexico Resident Credit (5%) and a Re-Applicant Credit (1%) for applicants re-applying due to being previously placed on a waiting list to enter the program. The Admissions Exam is the Test of Essential Academic Skills for Allied Health (TEAS V for AH) for all applicants applying to either program. This exam is taken specifically for the PTA program applicant, and is not replaced by taking the Accuplacer exam, for admission to San Juan College.
