OTD Frequently Asked Questions

    • What is your accreditation status?

      The Kettering College entry-level occupational therapy doctoral program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 6116 Executive Boulevard, Suite 200, North Bethesda, MD 20852-4929. ACOTE’s telephone number c/o AOTA is (301) 652-AOTA and its Web address is www.acoteonline.org. 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). Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure.

    • Do you require observation hours?

      Typically, twenty (20) hours observation of an occupational therapist is required. Evidence of a current OTA license can be substituted for the observation hours.

      Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the observation hours requirement has been waived for the 2020-2021 admission cycle. However, we encourage you to complete observation hours if you are able to. The purpose of OT observation hours is to explore the field of OT as a profession and to help ensure that this is the right career for you.

    • Do you have a rolling admissions process?

      A rolling admissions process will be used to extend early program offers between July 17, 2020 and January 28, 2021.

      • New completed applications will be reviewed monthly
      • Candidates who receive or exceed a predetermined minimum score will automatically receive an offer until all available positions within the program have been filled.
      • Candidates who receive lower than the predetermined minimum score or apply after the cohort is full will be placed on the Wait List.
      • Due to the rolling admissions process, all available seats in the program could be filled prior to January 28, 2021, therefore candidates are encouraged to apply early.
      • Candidates may be considered from the time of application until the close of the application cycle on March 26. 2021.

      If on January 29, 2021, all the positions within the program have not been filled, the remaining candidates will be ranked from highest score to lowest score. Positions in the program will then be offered to the highest scoring candidate(s). As new applications are verified and reviewed, the Admissions Counselor will add the candidate(s) to the Wait List, placed in the appropriate sequence relative to the other candidates based on the total OTCAS score.

      Applicants accepting the offers will be required to submit a time-sensitive formal written acceptance and a $500 non-refundable deposit. The $500 will be applied to the first semester’s tuition.

    • Do you have a waitlist?

      Yes. Candidates who receive lower than the predetermined minimum score or apply after the cohort is full will be placed on the waitlist.

      • Due to the rolling admissions process, all available seats in the program could be filled prior to January 28, 2021, therefore candidates are encouraged to apply early.
      • Candidates may be considered from the time of application until the close of the application cycle on March 26. 2021.

    • Do you require all course work to be complete prior to applying to the program?

      Course work is only required to be completed prior to the start of the academic year.

    • Where can the GRE code for Kettering College be located?

      Select GRE Designated Institution Code (DI) 4665 to submit your official GRE score directly to OTCAS.

    • Can you review my transcripts and guide me on what is still need for the application process?

      Kettering College now uses Transferology to confirm transferable courses. Login to Transferology (https://www.transferology.com/index.htm)
      to see how your courses will transfer, and contact us with any additional questions.

    • Do you currently accept transfer students?

      At the present, we DO NOT accept any OTD transfer courses.  All applicants must take ALL OTD courses from us.

    • International Credit Transfers

      If you have received college credit from any international college or university, you’ll need to have an official transcript mailed to Kettering College directly from the institution(s), and will need to have the transcript(s) officially translated by a company that provides credential evaluation, such as WES, ECE, or Josef Silny (www.wes.org, www.ece.org, www.jsilny.com).
