Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) and The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy, Inc. (NBCOT)

Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education awarded the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Occupational Therapy Program accreditation for a period of 10 years 2015/2016 through 2025/2026.

The occupational therapy 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.

The National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy, Inc. (NBCOT) is a not-for-profit credentialing agency that provides certification for the occupational therapy profession through administration of a national certification examination. NBCOT serves the public interest by developing, administering, and continually reviewing a certification process that reflects current standards of competent practice in occupational therapy. The NBCOT also works with state regulatory authorities, providing information on credentials, professional conduct, and regulatory and certification renewal issues.

As graduates of a NBCOT recognized occupational therapy education program at the post-baccalaureate degree level, OUHSC students are eligible to take the NBCOT national certification examination. After successfully passing the NBCOT national certification examination, individuals become an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). Oklahoma, like most states, requires licensure to practice, and acquiring a state license is based on successfully passing the NBCOT Certification Examination and initial national registration.

It is important to note, that any arrest, charge, or conviction for a felony or a misdemeanor may not only affect a student's ability to attend certain clinical sites for clinical education and fieldwork, but it may also affect a graduate's ability to sit for the certification examination or obtain state licensure.
Program results from the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) can be found online.
