Prerequisites

Application changes due to Covid-19

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the OT Admissions Committee is making the following changes to application requirements for the 2020-2021 application cycle:

  1. Acceptance of online labs for prerequisite courses completed in spring 2020, summer 2020, and fall 2020. These will be accepted for any application year.
  2. Acceptance of a Satisfactory grade for prerequisite courses completed in spring 2020.  The preference would be for all applicants to earn a letter grade.  If an applicant’s school has transitioned to a Satisfactory/Fail or Pass/Fail grading option, grades would be accepted as follows:  For students in the Indiana University system, a Satisfactory grade would be accepted although a Passing grade would not be accepted.  For applicants from universities other than Indiana University, either Satisfactory or Passing grades will be accepted, though Satisfactory is preferred if both S and P grades are an option.
  3. No OT shadowing hours are required for the 2020-2021 application cycle.
