EXCEPTION: A degree from a foreign CAPTE-accredited PT program exempts you from the evaluation requirement. However, applicants from CAPTE-accredited programs must have a transcript and a Letter of Completion sent by the school directly to the Board.
NOTE: Many US Masters and DPT programs are not entry-level programs. Only graduation from an accredited entry-level PT program eliminates your foreign-trained status. Check with the school to determine whether the program is entry-level and accredited.
– Internet-based (ibt): Writing 22; Speaking 24; Reading 22; Listening 21.
**If you took the test more than two years ago, the Board will accept certified copies of your scores from your credentialer, another licensing board, the company that did your Visa Screen or US University.
**The Board will accept more than one score report if it took more than one attempt to pass all parts of the TOEFL. You do not have to pass a section again if you have passed it on a previous test date.
