Accreditation is the on-going process by which an agency evaluates a program of study as meeting certain pre-determined standards and criteria. The Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) is accredited by the U.S. Office of Education as the only accrediting agency for educational programs in occupational therapy. The U of U MOT Program has been accredited by ACOTE (2017-2027).
The Board of Regents and the University of Utah Administration have designated the Occupational Therapy program as one of the programs with differential tuition for all students.
Students will be required to pay an increased amount of tuition--in addition to regular tuition. These monies are earmarked specifically for the Occupational Therapy program to help support our curriculum and programs.
There will also be fees for certain classes and labs. View tuition rates. Scroll down to Occupational Therapy. Click on the applicable residency to see the current rates. We estimate around $300 to $500 for textbooks based on the semester. We encourage students to purchase used or e-books to reduce costs. The OT faculty work together to coordinate textbook needs. For example, a book you'll purchase for your first semester will continue to be used throughout the curriculum.
Program costs, as compiled by the Occupational Therapy program, based on the current year income accounting rates and additional fees per course.
A comprehensive list of university wide scholarships can be found at Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid.
Tuition at the University of Utah is charged at differential rates for residents versus non-residents. If you are admitted as a non-resident, we strongly recommend that you read the University’s Institutional Policy on residency reclassification which may be found here: http://admissions.utah.edu/apply/residency
The MOT Program at the University of Utah has been approved by the Professional Student Exchange Program (PSEP) of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE)! This program enables students in Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, and Wyoming to attend graduate school in Utah at the resident rate. As of June 2017, Arizona will no longer support student for occupational therapy. For more information, please visit WICHE.
