Master of Occupational Therapy (OT)

Thank you for your interest in occupational therapy at the University of Cincinnati. With a Program Director now hired, we have submitted our Letter of Intent to begin the accreditation process with the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE).  We will be posting updates regarding the status of the MOT Program application over the coming months.

For those who need to complete an undergraduate degree appropriate for application to a graduate Occupational Therapy program, the on-ground Health Sciences Behavioral and Occupation Studies track (HLSC-BO) is available for freshman enrollment, transition students and transfer students.  The distance learning, primarily online version of this track (HLSC-BO-DL) is also available for enrollment and is limited to students who hold an Associates’ Degree in Occupational Therapy Assisting. These two tracks were designed to meet, or exceed, the undergraduate course requirements for application to most graduate Occupational Therapy programs; students who successfully complete one of these tracks will find that they are able to apply to UC’s program when it comes available, and also to a number of other graduate OT programs across the country.

Accreditation Status Update
