• Graduate Record Examination (GRE)

    See also GRE codes for PTCAS programs.

    Request Official GRE Scores

    There is no GRE code for PTCAS. Instead, you must arrange for the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to send your official GRE scores to the correct college code for each designated PT program. The GRE college code for a PT program often differs from the main university code. PTCAS will forward your official GRE scores to a designated program if you arrange for ETS to send scores to that particular program’s PTCAS GRE code. Visit the PTCAS Directory for a list of GRE codes

    PTCAS Will Not Report Your Official GRE Scores to a Particular PT Program, If...

    • You use the GRE code for a different program.
    • You do not apply to the program during the 2015-16 cycle.
    • The PT program only has a "university" GRE code.

    Failure to send official GRE scores correctly may jeopardize your chances of admissions to a PT program.  Visit the PTCAS site for a list of GRE codes.

    GRE Status at PTCAS

    Login to your application to check the status of your GRE scores sent to PT programs with PTCAS GRE codes.  If received, PTCAS will share your scores with only those programs that you have requested scores be sent to by ETS, and have a PTCAS GRE code. If you do not send your GRE scores to the correct college codes, a program may consider your file incomplete, even if PTCAS received your official scores from ETS.

    Reapplicants must request new official GRE scores for new designated PT programs and new exams taken.
