The Program in Occupational Therapy looks for students with a strong academic background and a commitment to promoting the health, productivity, and quality of life of individuals and society through the therapeutic application of occupation.
Applicants are required to have a plan for completion of a bachelor's degree or equivalent from an accredited U.S. institution (or a foreign equivalent) by the time of admission, and a grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher on the last 45 credits of their undergraduate degree program (approximately last two years). Applicants come to the program with a variety of undergraduate backgrounds, but often major in social or biological sciences.
Students may apply during their senior year, but must complete the baccalaureate degree prior to entering the OT program.
The curriculum uses a hybrid educational model with a blend of distance (technology-enhanced) and face-to-face instruction. Students come to campus several times each semester for face-to-face interaction with other students and faculty. These on-campus sessions (2-3 consecutive days per session) increase in frequency across the semesters.
