Hover over each state on the map below to view the average Physical Therapist license processing times.

The map also outlines which states are actively participating in the Physical Therapy Compact (PT Compact) or not and where legislation has been introduced.


The PT Compact is an interstate agreement between member states to provide a state-developed collaborative structure to protect the public by increasing consumer access to physical therapy services by reducing regulatory barriers to interstate mobility and cross-state practice.  It allows PTs and PTAs to work in member states without going through the usual process for licensure outside their home state.

PTs and PTAs that consider their home state to be one of the member states, can verify their eligibility and purchase compact privileges on the PT Compact site.
