Score Transfer Service

Become Licensed in another Jurisdiction

National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE®) scores are automatically reported to the jurisdiction licensing authority through which you applied for initial licensure.

However, after you receive your initial license, you may want to become licensed in additional jurisdictions. Most jurisdictions require a score be transferred by FSBPT to ensure that the score is authentic.

You may transfer your score any time after scores are released for the exam. A fee applies each time you send your score to a new jurisdiction.

Please note: Transferring your NPTE score is only one step in the process of obtaining a license in another state. For the most up-to-date information on requirements for licensure, contact your jurisdiction directly. For contact information, see our Licensing Authorities Contact Information page.

Have you considered a compact privilege?  When you want to practice in another state, a compact privilege may be an option for you. If your permanent residence is in an active compact state, you have a license in that state, AND the new state is also an active compact jurisdiction, you would be eligible for a compact privilege. Compact privilege holders have the same abilities as license holders but are able to take advantage of a streamlined purchase experience.  Compact privileges are issued at the time they are applied for through the PT Compact Commission. 

View the list of active compact states here.

What to Expect

You may request a score transfer from within your Customer Dashboard by clicking on the “Score Transfer to State” button on the left side of the screen. Simply follow the prompts to complete the score transfer.


You must have already tested to transfer a score. The FSBPT will transfer failing scores upon request. Refunds will not be given after a request for a score transfer that has been processed.

If you tested prior to 1987, your score might not be available for online transfer at this time. If we are unable to process your request online, a link will be provided to download and print the Score Transfer Request form and offline instructions.

Next Steps

FSBPT will transfer your score(s) directly to the licensing authority in the jurisdiction that you selected when the request and payment have been received. To determine if a Score Transfer has been completed go to Status of My Request on your Customer Dashboard.

Requirements for Purchasing

During this process, you will be asked to select a method of payment. You may pay by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover online.
