Foreign Educated PT Applicants
PT/PTA | Foreign Educated PT Applicants
Foreign educated individuals - Anyone educated outside the United States
West Virginia does not consider licensure for anyone from a foreign country who alleges to have the equivalent of a PTA degree. It is not possible for a foreign-educated person who does not prove equivalency towards a PT degree to then qualify as a PTA. Only applicants who believe that they have the equivalent of a PT degree should apply.
If you have a BS degree from a foreign country and then graduate from a US PT program, the degree you are working towards or have received must be "Entry-Level Masters" and NOT "Advanced". The advanced PT masters degree is not accredited and not
recognized by any state PT board in the United States.
Please be advised that effective June 7, 2010 all sections of the TOEFL must have passing scores on one test, and multiple tests cannot be combined.
