OT Master's-Level Applicant Programs

New educational programs seeking accreditation (not yet holding Candidacy Status). Until Candidacy Status has been granted by ACOTE, these programs cannot admit students into the OT program.

NOTE: In order for OT master’s degree students to be eligible for the NBCOT certification exam, they must:

  • Graduate from an ACOTE-accredited entry-level master’s degree occupational therapy program prior to July 1, 2027.
  • New or repeat candidates with an entry-level master’s degree conferred prior to July 1, 2027 must sit for the NBCOT exam prior to the implementation of the next new practice analysis results, which is anticipated to be approximately 18 months after the July 1, 2027 mandate takes effect.

Students graduating with a master’s degree after July 1, 2027 will not be eligible to sit for the NBCOT OTR exam.
