Our admissions staff is available to assist you with any questions you might have regarding the application or admission process. We look forward to working with you.
Most applications are processed as soon as they are complete, and decisions are generally made within a few weeks from the time the application and all supporting materials are received. Applicants are encouraged to submit their application before the early application deadline. An application must be submitted before the final application deadline.
The Doctor of Physical Therapy program has a soft deadline, which means you can still apply to the program after the initial application deadline has passed, but the program may give less or no consideration to your file if you apply after this deadline. The Master of Physician Assistant Studies program has a firm deadline which means you cannot apply to the program after the deadline has passed. Applications are processed after the application deadline and decisions are generally made within the next few months.
Notice of Admission Decisions
All admission decisions are final. The admissions process is competitive. Admission decisions are based on combination of academic background, professional experience, statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation. The Doctor of Physical Therapy and Master of Physician Assistant Studies admission decisions are based on combination of requirements as outlined on each degree program’s respective webpage. If accepted, all applicants will be given a period of time to consider the offer and then confirm enrollment or decline the admissions offer.
Acceptance of the offer is generally not deferred; however, programs are permitted to recommend admission deferrals on a case-by-case basis, generally only for extenuating circumstances. If granted, the deferral is normally for the next cohort start only; the student is expected to have accepted Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions’ offer of admission by confirming enrollment. Accordingly, a student who requests and is approved to defer admission is considered under an obligation to enroll and attend the program the following cohort start.
Where the deferred student fails to satisfy the reason for or conditions of the deferral, the deferral may be withdrawn and the offer of admission may be rescinded, thereby prompting the need to re-apply, if the applicant wishes to be considered for future admission.
Requests for deferral should be made according to normal admission response deadlines.
Admissions Review Committee
The Admissions Review Committee (ARC) is comprised of representation from the professional disciplines of the University’s programs. If an applicant does not meet the minimum requirements for admission, but is deemed worthy of consideration for admittance by the GPD, then the GPD may request through the Vice Provost/Academic Dean (VP/AD) an ARC review. The ARC will review specific criteria and may uphold the Committee decision or make recommendations for provisional admittance. For the latter, specific criteria that must be met to achieve full-time active student status must be established. The decision of the ARC is binding.
Program Cancellation or Postponement
The University reserves the right to cancel or postpone a program prior to the published start date.
