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).
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.
