·         Return the signed and completed form with a $25 check or money order payable to the “OT Licensing Board”. 
·         Your official school transcripts must be sent directly to the Oregon OT Licensing Board from your school. Transcripts sent via eSCRIP are accepted as long as they are sent by the school.
·         We require the "Authorization to Test" notification from NBCOT - you can forward the email or fax a copy.   You do not need to pay for a paper copy to be sent to the OT Licensing Board if you have the email.
