Progression Requirements

To progress in the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program, students MUST:

1. Complete the requirements of the program in each semester as outlined below. General Education courses may be completed in or before the semester identified. 

2. A minimum grade of "C" is required in all Occupational Therapy Assistant courses.  Students who do not achieve a minimum grade of 70 in any course required by the program will not be able to progress in the program.

3. Maintain an overall and cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for all coursework applicable to meet degree requirements.

4. No student will be allowed to enter or continue in any fieldwork experience unless:

  1.  A "C" or higher grade is maintained/achieved in each course including all prerequisite and co-requisite courses.
  2. All course and lab work is successfully completed according to class schedules in the course and co-requisite courses.
  3. Failure to maintain a 70% average in all co-requisite courses to fieldwork experiences will require the student to be immediately withdrawn from fieldwork experience.  If fieldwork time cannot be completed prior to the end of the semester, the student will also need to withdraw from all OTA courses, which are co-requisites to the clinic class.  See readmission policy.

 5. All OTA students are expected to demonstrate ethical and professional behaviors and attitudes at all times as defined by the Performance Standards for progression and graduation in the OTA program. Failure to do so will result in the student's immediate termination from the clinical component of the curriculum.
