State Physical Therapy & Occupational Therapy Board

SB74 – Physical Therapy Licensure Compact was passed by the Alaska Legislature May, 2024.

This bill enacts fingerprinting and criminal background checks for physical therapy and occupational therapy applicants in Alaska. The requirement for fingerprint cards and fingerprint card fees - $75 will become effective 07/01/2024 or as soon as the Governor signs the bill, whichever is later. We don’t know exactly what date that will be. If your pending application is not completed and license issued prior to the bill’s signature, you will be required to meet this new condition. You will be notified via email with more information if this becomes necessary. (AS 08.84.030(a)(4); 08.84.032(a)&(b)(8))

Limited Permit, Renewal, and Reinstatement applications are exempt from this requirement. (AS 08.84.034)
