Notification of Admission Status

Letters will be sent based on ranking offering either admission, placement on an alternate list, or non-acceptance. Those who are accepted must respond in writing accepting admission according to the guidelines provided in the letter sent.

Individual advising will be provided for those students not accepted into the professional program, in order to plan for the student's success in meeting their academic goals. 

No information about admissions will be given out, except by letter to the student. 


Preparation for Fall Semester

For Fall registration, all students should plan two schedules or plans of action that would accommodate either acceptance or non-acceptance. Adjustments to summer and/or fall schedules can be made through online registration as soon as admission status is determined.

Student Withdrawal of Application

If the student chooses to withdraw their application for any reason, this withdrawal must be made in writing to the Occupational Therapy office.
