Accreditation


The occupational therapy program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE www.acoteonline.org) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, P.O. Box 31220, Bethesda, MD 20824-1220, phone (301) 652-AOTA (
www.aota.org). In 2010, CSM received a 10-year re-accreditation from ACOTE. This accreditation period is only awarde to program that are in full compliance with all ACOTE standards, and provides national recognition of our program.   

Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be an occupational therapist, registered (OTR). Most states require licensure in order to practice. State licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination.   A felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination, attain state licensure, or complete fieldwork.
