Graduates of the program will be 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 individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). In addition, most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure.

The total number of graduates from the University of Southern Indiana Master of Occupational Therapy program during the 3-year period of 2014-2016 was 82 with an overall graduation rate of 95%.

Students must complete Level II fieldwork within 24 months following completion of the didactic portion of the program.

Please note: a felony conviction (this includes documentation of driving under the influence—DUI) will affect your eligibility to take the national certification examination and also state credentialing (e.g., license, certificate, registration). If you are currently charged with or have been convicted of a felony, please notify the Occupational Therapy Program immediately. In addition, if you have had credentials (e.g., license, registration, and certificate) in another field (e.g., PTA) denied, revoked, suspended, or subject to probationary conditions; your eligibility to take the national certification examination may be in jeopardy. Please contact the Occupational Therapy Program if you have questions.
