Pre-Occupational Therapy

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Letters, Arts & Sciences

IMPORTANT: UCCS does not have an occupational therapy program. Pre-Occupational Therapy Prep is not a major or a minor, but a listing of prerequisite courses and recommendations needed to be eligible for admission into CSU’s College of Health and Human Services in Ft. Collins, CO.

A bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 120 credits from an accredited college or university is required to be completed prior to matriculation to the program.

Other programs may have different requirements. Students should check admissions requirements for all schools to which they plan to apply. Completion of prerequisite coursework does not guarantee acceptance into any professional degree.

Application Information for the CSU College of Health and Human Services, including contact information, application materials, deadlines, and testing, can be found at:http://www.ot.chhs.colostate.edu/students/professional.aspx.

For more information, contact Academic Advising at (719) 255-3260 or advising@uccs.edu.

Grades: All prerequisite courses should be completed with a grade of “C” or better, and must be completed by time of matriculation. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 is required for application.
