Non-Degree Admission
Admission is available to those students who may not fully meet the requirements for admission (e.g., a student who has not yet received results of the national certification exam but is working as an occupational therapist). A non-refundable application fee is required with the non-degree application. The student will be required to maintain a 3.0 average in three courses before applying as a degree-seeking student. When three courses have been successfully completed, the student may then apply as a degree-seeking student, providing all missing application materials have been completed.

Students are admitted to the MHS and DHS program on an ongoing basis. The University reserves the right to revoke an offer of admission if any information provided is found to be inaccurate or falsified.
