The Florida International University Occupational Therapy Professional MS Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) at acote.aota.org of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) at aota.org, located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, P.O. Box 31220, Bethesda, MD 20824-1220. ACOTE’S telephone number C/O AOTA is (301) 652-AOTA. Only the entry-level Professional Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program is accredited by ACOTE. Graduates of the program will be able to sit for the national certification examination for occupational therapists administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) at nbcot.org. After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). The program is currently accredited through 2019.
At this time we are not accepting any new applications for our Post Professional MSOT program. A proposal has been made to close this track of the OT program and we are awaiting an administrative review.
Our application process has changed. The Occupational Therapy program is now participating in an electronic application process through the Occupational Therapy Centralized Application Service (OTCAS). Please go to our Admission and Advising page for all the details.
