Applicants who have successfully completed the prerequisite coursework and have a minimum G.P.A. of 3.0 will be interviewed and/or participate in an orientation meeting with faculty members. All candidates should:
- Submit a two-page essay with an introductory cover letter addressed to the Program Director along with three recommendations, supporting their suitability for the OT profession and demonstrating their understanding of the field.
- Include documentation of volunteer experience in an OT department, professional work experience in OT or a related health field, and/or personal life experience resulting in significant exposure to the field of OT.
- OTAs applying for admission should submit documentation of one year of OTA work experience and initial NBCOT certification (even if inactive) for OTAs. If the certification has been revoked, the applicant is ineligible for program admission.
Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of their group orientation/interview presentation, academic record, application essay, on-site essay, work experience, and letters of reference.
