• Fee Waiver Notifications 

    When a decision is made on your fee waiver application, PTCAS will notify you through your application (login to your account and check for messages) and email. It is important that you not submit your application until you receive your fee waiver decision. All fee waiver decisions are final.

    Fee Waiver Expiration

    If you are approved for a PTCAS fee waiver, you must submit your PTCAS application within 14 business days from the time the fee waiver approval is emailed to you. If you do not submit your application within 14 calendar days after the fee waiver award date, your fee waiver is automatically forfeited, and you will not be able to submit another fee waiver request during this application cycle.

    Applying Fee Waiver To Payment

    If a fee waiver is approved, the base application amount will automatically be applied to your account during the application submission and payment process. If you apply to additional programs beyond the scope of your awarded fee waiver, you may be responsible for the additional fees.

    Low Income Levels

    The PTCAS fee waiver is tied to the US Department of Health and Human Services’ poverty level guidelines. The Low-Income levels below equal 200% of the DHHS poverty level.
