The SHS Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy Programs may accept up to 9 credits of program-specific courses that will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The coursework must have been completed at a regionally accredited institution and also from a program currently accredited by the program’s accrediting body and taken within the the 2 years prior to requesting consideration for transfer. The courses will be evaluated by the Admissions Committee of the program, including a faculty member with knowledge/expertise in the content area of the course being considered, to determine equivalency to program courses in the Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy Programs at Emory & Henry.
In order to consider transfer of credit to these programs, the applicant must meet the following criteria:
