Timeline of the implementation of the OTD program pending SACSCOC approval


Applicants need to be aware that the OT program is in the process of transitioning the entry-level MOT program to an entry-level Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program. The program must be granted Candidacy Status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) before students can be admitted to the entry-level OTD program. Applicants who apply to the OT program during this transitional period will be admitted to either the entry-level MOT or OTD program depending on when Candidacy Status is granted by ACOTE. Check the TTUHSC OT program webpage for updates about the status of the OTD program.
