Admission Requirements and Tuition
Post Professional OTD Admission Criteria
Application to the Post Professional OTD program is open to all occupational therapists who entered the profession with a bachelor's degree or master's degree in occupational therapy from an accredited institution. It is expected that all applicants are licensed or eligible for licensure in the United States. Additionally, a student in the Post Professional OTD program must be currently employed as an occupational therapist or have a minimum of one year's experience as an occupational therapist.
Official transcripts from all previous institutions of higher learning must be submitted directly to the University in accordance with the Application for Admission instructions.
International Students Applying for Admission
Foreign-trained candidates who do not require a student visa to participate in University courses and/or degrees can be considered for admission. To enter the Post Professional OTD program, the following criteria will apply:
- Be a graduate of a program in a country that is a member of the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.
Policy on Official Transcripts
Official transcripts must be submitted from each college or university previously attended. Official transcripts that accompany NACES approved credentialing evaluations will be accepted as official. An official transcript is one sent directly to the Student Services office by the registrar of the issuing institution, one forwarded in a sealed envelope from the issuing institution, or one that accompanies a NACES approved credentialing evaluation.
- Submit credentials and transcripts that provide evidence of training at a level equivalent to that of a bachelor's degree in the United States.
Notification of Status
The applicant will be notified by letter from the University of his/her admission status after all required application materials have been reviewed by the Admissions Committee.
To remain in the Post Professional OTD program, the student must:
- Maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA.
- Complete one course within 3 months (12 weeks) and must complete 9 credits within a calendar year.
If a student cannot complete the required work within the predetermined timeframe, he/she will receive a grade of Incomplete ("I"). The student must then complete the work by the new assigned due date to receive a letter grade. No further extension will be permitted. If the student does not complete the requirements within the approved time, the "I" grade will automatically become an Incomplete/Fail ("I/F") on his/her transcript.
