OTA Graduation Requirements

State College of Florida's Occupational Therapy Assistant Program requires twenty-one months to complete. In addition to classroom coursework, students will participate in Level I Fieldwork placements.

Upon completion of classroom coursework, the last semester will involve two eight-week Level II Fieldwork placements. To qualify for the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant, a student must complete 74 credit hours as prescribed and attain a grade point average of 2.0. Occupational Therapy Assistants must earn an Associate Degree from an academic program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) to sit for the national certification exam for Occupational Therapist Assistants.

In addition, Florida regulates the practice of Occupational Therapy Assistants through state licensure. The OTA curriculum for the OTA Program at SCF is comprehensive and provides students with an academic and practical foundation that meets both the accreditation and industry standards and protocols.
