The University of Missouri - St. Louis proudly offers classes that prepare students to enter occupational therapy school. Since admission requirements can vary between schools, it is highly recommended that students consult the catalogs of the schools to which they intend to apply. A list of accredited programs can be found here at the American Occupational Therapy Association website. Students are also encouraged to meet regularly with the pre-health advisor to ensure they are meeting requirements.
In addition to taking required classes, students should plan to regularly participate in extracurricular activities such as shadowing, volunteering and research.
Students may also be required to sit a national entrance exam such as the GRE during their junior year. Practice tests are regularly offered on campus by third-party test prep organizations.
Each year, the number of applicants exceeds the number of available places. Students are encouraged to have alternative plans should they not gain entrance. For further information contact the Office of Undergraduate Student Affairs in the College of Arts and Sciences, 303 Lucas Hall, 314-516-5501.
