New Building on Round Rock Campus

Construction on the new health professions building at Round Rock has begun.  You can see the crane as you approach campus and when you arrive, you see the blue construction fences.  We are excited about the building process and continue to plan the student learning and supports spaces - interior design, furniture, equipment.  We will try to post updates as pictures become available.

Admissions 2018

Computer Based Testing

The Department of Physical Therapy has recently transitioned to computerized testing.  In many of the classes, faculty will administer quizzes and exams using SofTest from ExamSoft.  SofTest is a high stakes assessment program developed and licensed by ExamSoft that  enables exam takers to securely take examinations downloaded to their own laptop or tablet device.  SofTest can be used on most modern Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX based computers and some tablets (ipad and Windows Surface Pro).  Starting in summer of 2017, all students enrolled in the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program will be required to have access to a device that meets the Minimum System Requirements.

How do I check my minimum system requirements?

Texas State PT Faculty 100%

Texas State Faculty have taken the challenge. There is 100% membership in the American Physical Therapy Association by the faculty of the Department of Physical Therapy. We are proud that we have had 100% every year since the challenge started.  We challenge our students each year to hit this benchmark as well.
