In addition, most states require licensure in order to practice occupational therapy; however state licenses are usually based on the results of the national certification exam. A felony conviction may affect a graduates ability to sit for the certification exam or to attain state licensure.
The Program’s overall pass rate for the 2014 and 2015 time period was 100% (first-time test-takers and test-retakers). Program results from the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) can be found online at secure.nbcot.org/data/schoolstats.aspx
