Eligibility: Qualified physical therapist (PT) and physical therapist assistant (PTA) members must be graduates of a CAPTE-accredited PT or PTA program (the program must be accredited at time of graduation). Previous student membership in APTA is neither a necessity nor a sufficient condition or qualification for PT or PTA membership. Proof of graduation is required via submission of supporting documentation (diploma or transcripts) for first-time PT and PTA members; because each state has its own licensure requirements, a copy of licensure would not be acceptable as proof of graduation.
