How often do you offer Exams? - When do you post the exam dates?

The majority of the exams are given on multiple dates in January and August during the program petition windows. An exam might be offered prior to winter and summer break or if a petition window is extended.

January exam dates are posted in mid October and August exam dates are posted in mid March.

When should I take my Exam?

We suggest that students allow at least 3 months to prepare for their exam. Ideally, prerequisite courses should be completed or you are entering the the final semester of prerequisites. Many students take the exam during their program's petition window, however students can take the exam earlier during a non petitioning window.

An example; someone wants to petition for the Physical Therapist Assistant program which has one petition window open per year during the month of August. Accepted applicants would start the program the following January. The student could take the exam during their petition month of August or the prior January (eight months earlier).

How is the Exam weighed in the Petitioning Process?

The exam is one requirement in the petition review process. For more details on the Petition Process, please see the Petition Office link.
