Your fee waiver request must be received and processed before you submit your PTCAS application.
A limited number of PTCAS application fee waivers are available to financially disadvantaged applicants and are granted on a first-come, first-served 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 program in PTCAS for free. If you choose to apply to more than 1 program, you will pay a fee of $45 for each additional designation. The PTCAS waiver applies to the PTCAS application fee only. You could still be responsible for supplemental application fees, regardless of your PTCAS waiver status.
Fee Waiver Eligibility
To be eligible for a PTCAS fee waiver you must be a United States citizen or Permanent Resident, or have refugee/asylum status.
Do not submit your application until PTCAS approves or denies your fee waiver request. If you submit your application prior to notification, PTCAS will automatically deny your fee waiver request.
