If you're wondering about your eligibility to apply or the steps to take:

  • After reviewing the information on the Honor Society's home page regarding the 
  • Your Program should be able to tell you whether or not you are in the top 25% of your cohort academically.  If so, follow these steps:
    • Register yourself in order to begin an application.  Be sure to save your login information should you wish to log in at a later time to complete your application.  IMPORTANT:  You must register yourself in the website and complete the information requested in order to be considered by your program.
    • When you register, you'll be asked to provide a 250 word or less description on how your involvement in service, research, and leadership activities personally impacted your professional growth as a physical therapy student in relation to potential membership in the National Student Honor Society. You'll also be asked to describe how your experiences prepared you as a future physical therapist to promote and advance the profession of physical therapy
    • Provide information regarding any/all of the following categories below.  You will see a prompt for each after you register or login.  Be sure to submit each project individually.  You'll be able to review/edit all of your entries before submitting your application.
    • When you are finished with all of your entries, you will see the option at the top of the screen to "Export to PDF", which will compile all of your information to serve as your application.  Select this option and print your application for submission to your program (we recommend you print a copy for yourself as well).
    • Secure 3 letters of recommendation as supporting evidence to accompany your application.  These letters of recommendation do NOT need to be uploaded into the system.
    • Submit your pdf application and letters of recommendation to your institution's program chair/director in order to be considered for nomination into the National Honor Society.  Your program chair/director should forward these to the selection committee. ACAPT does not keep a record of each institution's committee so we cannot assist with submission to your institution's committee. 
    • The program chair/director from each institution should notify ACAPT of their selection committee's decision, according to the selection criteria and the timeline
    • Those selected will be considered Inductees whose names will appear on the ACAPT website.  Inductees will also receive a National Student Honor Society lapel pin and certificate.  Note: Should students or their institution wish to purchase honor cords for their inductees to wear, then they should be sure to use the colors for the Delta Phi Tau Honor Society, which are Teal and Gold in a single cord.  Honor cords purchased are the expense of the student or institution.
