Students interested in the pre-occupational therapy advising track must be on track to complete all prerequisite coursework, have a minimum 3.0 GPA, and be on track to receive a baccalaureate degree by the time of applying to be considered for admission to OT school. Students interested in OT school should consult with a pre-professional health adviser to learn about requirements that are specific to the schools to which they hope to apply.
Declaration of the pre-occupational therapy advising track through the Office of Pre-Professional Health Advising does not constitute admission to the VCU Occupational Therapy program. Students must apply separately to the occupation therapy school of their choice at the appropriate time.
Students with an interest in preparing for OT school must declare an academic major and should declare and maintain their pre-occupational therapy advising track. Students do not earn a pre-occupational therapy degree. Students unsure of their academic majors initially should clarify their academic interests through regular conversations with their advisers. Pre-occupational therapy students are encouraged to major in fields of greatest interest to them. To declare a pre-occupational therapy advising track, please see the pre-professional health advising blog.
Specialties: Gerontology, Mental Health, Pediatrics, Physical Rehabilitation, Driving and Community Mobility, Environmental Modification, Feeding, Eating, and Swallowing, Low Vision, School Systems
As a student interested in a pre-professional health program, you must complete curriculum and professional development requirements listed on the Pre-Professional Health Advising Blog.
