The Occupational Therapy Assistant Student Handbook Supplement contains the program policies. By accepting enrollment as an occupational therapy assistant student, each applicant agrees to abide by the policies as outlined in the Supplement.
All students must present:
- Yearly verification of tuberculosis screening. If the test is positive, refer to the Communicable Disease Policy in the Student Handbook for additional information.
- Updated immunization records including hepatitis B, MMR and Tetanus-Diphtheria.
- Verification of varicella vaccination or show immunity (titer).
- Evidence of physical examination within three months prior to beginning the program.
- Verification of current certification in professional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from the American Heart Association, including infant, child, and adult CPR.
- Evidence of a successfully completed FIT test prior to the professional program deadline.
All students must have a background check. The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) and various state licensing agencies require disclosure of all felony convictions. The results of this background check may impact eligibility for certification and licensure. Eligibility should be determined in advance of beginning an educational program. Felony convictions must be resolved by the NBCOT’s Qualifications Review Committee. Mental health intervention may also affect the individual’s ability to obtain state licensure.
