Professional Program Requirements for the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy
Because the occupational therapy program prepares students to practice in a variety of settings, we assume the responsibility to assure the public that our students have met high standards of professional behavior, academic achievement and consistent evidence of response to consumer needs. Criminal background checks may be required prior to participation in certain clinical experiences. The cost of this evaluation may be the responsibility of the student.
The program requires that students attain a minimum of 84 percent competency in each course, which is reflected in each course syllabus across the professional curriculum.
