Occupational Therapy Assistant
Admission to the OTA program is competitive. Students are required to submit application materials to the MHPC Occupational Therapy Assistant Program Director at the University of Missouri-Columbia by the deadline of May 31, prior to the year of admittance. In order to apply to the Missouri Health Professions Consortium (MHPC) Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) Program at Moberly Area Community College students must complete and submit an official application packet available at the MACC Admission’s Office. Students must complete all general education coursework PRIOR to entry into the professional level program. However, students can complete coursework in the semester prior to the start of the program; under these circumstances, program admission would be contingent upon successful completion of general education prerequisite coursework and maintenance of the required 2.5 GPA.
This degree will articulate to a Bachelor of Health Science (BHS) degree at the University of Missouri-Columbia (UMC). While a bachelor degree is not required to practice as an OTA, 60 credit hours will transfer to UMC if graduates wish to pursue this additional degree.
