Division of Occupational Therapy

The accrediting agency of OT educational programs (ACOTE) is requiring that new occupational therapists entering the profession have an Occupational Therapy Doctoral (OTD) degree as of 2027. As part of this transition, WVU anticipates accepting the first class of Doctoral students in June of 2021. This means that the last class of students into the Master’s degree program will be admitted in June of 2020. After June of 2020 all new students entering the OT program will have to complete a Bachelors degree prior to admission. Please check the web site frequently in the upcoming months as more information about the transition is published.
