11. How long will it take for my PT Observation Hours to be verified by my supervisor?
It will take 1-3 business days for the hours to be verified (it may even be quicker than that). When you submit the hours to PTCAS, the company will get an email, and will review what has been inputted into the system on both ends to verify that what you have stated on your application is correct. Once it is approved the Observation Hours will update immediately on your PTCAS account. We are making it a priority to review & complete this daily, so students are not stuck waiting on us to submit their finalized application!
12. What should I do if it's been 3 business days and PT Observation Hours hasn't verified my hours?
First, check that all the information you have inputted is correct!
After you have verified that, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: "MISSING VERIFICATION"
This way, we can check that we haven't missed anything. All of our customers are a priority to us, and we make it a priority to help the process of applying to PT school be as smooth as possible!
