Pre-OT Clubs and Workshops

The department offers group and individual advising sessions to assist students to plan a program of study that will prepare them to apply to the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree program. It is important for each student to attend advising sessions in order to plan their optimal academic program. You can also contact the undergraduate admissions coordinator, Dr. Gigi Smith, for more information.
