Degree Requirements

The OTD Program curriculum requires eight semesters for completion. OTD students complete all courses in the curriculum in sequence with a minimum grade of C. Satisfactory progress requires an overall 3.00 GPA and achievement of a minimum grade of C in all OTD courses. Students who fail to achieve a minimum grade of C in any OTD course are subject to dismissal. Transfer of credits for prerequisites are determined by the office of admissions and the OTD Program Director. Typically, transfer of credits from another occupational therapy program will not be accepted but exceptions may be determined by the office of admissions and the OTD program director. Up to 9 transfer credits of equivalent professional-level coursework, as deemed equivalent by the office of admissions and the OTD program director may be accepted from a student who requests to be considered for transfer to the Emory & Henry Occupational Therapy Program. Any student seeking transfer to the OTD Program at Emory & Henry College must be in good academic and professional behavior standards in his/her current occupational therapy program.
