Pre-Occupational Therapy Program

DR. GERALD SCHAFER, ADVISOR

Admission requirements for occupational therapy programs vary from program to program and students should check individual graduate schools for specific information about their program pre-requisites. Students must review these pre-requisites to ensure they are taking the necessary courses that can be completed as part of their academic program at Carroll.
