A limited number of PTCAS application fee waivers are available. Waivers are granted to financially disadvantaged applicants on a first-come, first-serve basis. PTCAS will decide if you qualify for a fee waiver based on your income, or your parent's income, if you are claimed as a dependent, as reported on the most recent federal income tax return. No other documentation is accepted. If you receive a fee waiver, you may apply to 1 PT program in PTCAS for free. If you choose to apply to more than 1 program, you will pay a fee of $40 for each additional designation. The PTCAS waiver applies to the PTCAS application fee only. You may still be responsible for supplemental application fees, regardless of your PTCAS waiver status.
If you e-submit your application prior to notification, PTCAS will automatically deny your fee waiver request
PTCAS fee waiver is tied to the United States Department of Health and Human Services' poverty level guidelines. The low-income levels displayed below equal 200% of the DHHS poverty level.
