Significant career placement success

Student Outcomes

Our graduated students consistently achieve high National Board for Certification in Occupation Therapy (NBCOT) scores, and have significant career placement success, reporting near 100 percent job placement in OT practice positions.

National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy

Graduates are eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the graduate will be an Occupational Therapist registered (OTR). In addition, most states require licensure to practice; however state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification examination. A felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT Certification examination or attain state licensure.
