Admission Paths

Path One: Direct Admission

Direct admission entry provides select incoming first-time freshmen matriculating directly out of high school an opportunity to enter directly into the graduate phase of the program and receive a guaranteed MOT seat, provided progression standards and cohort requirements are met as outlined in the Carroll University catalog. The MOT program comprises six total years of study for students who are directly admitted (freshman level of entry) with any major.

Path Two: Competitive Admission

This admission process is for those with an undergraduate degree at an institution outside of Carroll or current Carroll undergraduate students who do not have direct admission status. Competitive Admission applicants are required to apply through the Occupational Therapist Centralized Application Service (OTCAS). Please reference for more information.
