Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows if observation hours need to be physically logged, scanned, and uploaded to OTCAS to be used in your application. It has a location to upload that kind of material, but it doesn't show that as required for application.

I recorded all of my hours physically and had all of the therapists sign the documentation, but I seem to have lost all of the documents since I observed. I even found one of them about a month ago and it has since disappeared. I'm a mess lol :smack:

I just need to know if I need to bug my supervisors again before I can apply. Thank you in advance!

Hey Kim! Most schools don't require you show documentation and just go off of the observation hours you listed on OTCAS! I'd check on the schools you are applying to's website to clarify but I'm 90% sure most schools don't require it unless its listed as required on their website!

I think since you will provide the contact info that should be good enough. If schools have a ? They'll contact the places.
