GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION (GRE)
Due to changes in the GRE in 2011, programs may require or prefer that you to take “GRE® revised General Test”.
- GRE General Test = Testing on or before July 31, 2011
- GRE REVISED General Test = Testing on or after August 1, 2011
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”.
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 2014–15 cycle,
- the scores arrive at PTCAS before or after the cycle,
- the PT program only has a “university” GRE code.
Failure to send official GRE scores correctly may jeopardize your chances of admission 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 at PTCAS for each program designation. If received, PTCAS will share your scores with only those programs that you have requested scores be sent to from 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.
Re-Applicants: Re-applicants must request new GRE scores for new designated PT programs and new exams taken.
Early Decision: Early Decision candidates in PTCAS must take the GRE and request scores by no later than July 31.
