Admission to Pre-Occupational Therapy Assistant (POTA)

Beginning freshmen who seek admission to the first segment of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program (POTA) must meet the general admission requirements for admission to the University. Applications to ULM are submitted to the University Admissions Office. Students transferring from other divisions of the University and from other accredited colleges and universities should additionally have an overall academic record which indicates potential for success in an Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. Advising each semester is required. Students must go to the Student Success Center to have advising or developmental flags removed. Students entering the program with transfer credit must request a transcript review from the department to determine what coursework will be credited to the degree plan.

A grade of “C” or better is required for all occupational therapy assistant coursework contributing to the Associate of Science Degree. Completion of the pre-professional segment of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program (POTA) requirements does not guarantee admission to the professional segment of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program (OCTA).

Admission into the professional segment of the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program (OCTA) is on a competitive basis with enrollment determined annually based on the availability of resources of the Occupational Therapy Department.
