The School of OT began the transition from a master's entry-level degree to a doctor of OT (OTD) in the fall of 2012 with the expected graduation of the first class of OTD students for August 2015.
Program accreditation is a multistep process, the first step of which (application for accreditation) was successful. The Self-Study Report submitted in November 2013 was approved in early 2014. The expected date for a decision from ACOTE regarding our accreditation status is before or by early 2015.
Based on current accreditation status of the MOT program through 2017, graduates are assured of eligibility for certification and practice.
