OTD Accreditation

Our entry-level OTD program has been granted Candidacy Status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).

AOTA is located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, Suite 200, Bethesda, MD 20814-3449. Their telephone number is (301) 652-AOTA and its Web address is www.acoteonline.org.

Once accreditation is obtained, our graduates will be eligible to take 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 officially be an Occupational Therapist, registered by OTR.  Most states require licensure practice, and are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination.  Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to take the NBCOT exam or to attain state licensure.

If you have questions about the OTD degree, email us at otd@kc.edu.
