Approved Credentialing Agencies
• Texas accepts educational evaluations only from the credentialers on this page.
• To be accepted by the Board, your evaluation must be done using the FSBPT Coursework Tool (CWT) (at www.fsbpt.org, select Free Resources/Regulatory Resources/Credentials Evaluation) based on the year you graduated from your entry-level PT program. If have already had an evaluation done in the past using any other criteria than the CWT, or the evaluation was done prior to 2004, your education must be evaluated again using the appropriate version of the CWT.
• Call each credentialer to find out how long it will take and how much it will cost for the evaluation and any updates. The credentialing process can take from 3-12 months, depending on many factors. Before you submit your materials to a credentialer, we recommend that you contact each credentialer for specific information about how long the process can take, what documentation is required from you and your university, and what the fees are for evaluation and for revision of an evaluation at a later date. Credentialers are independent organizations not connected to the Board. The Board has no authority over them, and does not set their fees or processing times.
• The credentialer must send a copy of your evaluation directly to the Board. We cannot comment on your evaluation until we receive our copy from the credentialer.
