    • 1.) with a hardcopy MOT 2019 Application OR
    • 2.) through Occupational Therapy Centralized Application (OTCAS). Visit www.otcas.org to apply.  Additional fees apply ($125 for 1 program, $45 for each additional program.)
  • All applicants must initiate their online application with the ISU Graduate School before submitting either type of application to the MOT program.
  • Academic and other credentials will be reviewed competitively and an interview may be required prior to acceptance.
  • Applicants should be aware that although they may meet minimal entry-level requirements it does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

While the MOT program does accept non-resident and international students, the majority of seats are given to qualified Idaho residents in accordance with the mission of the university.

Students will be selected on a competitive basis. Those who are offered seats in the program and who wish to attend should submit the Acceptance/ Seat Confirmation Fee at that time to ensure their seat is reserved.

The ISU Occupational Therapy Program accepts applications on a rolling basis, however, completed applications received by January 15th will receive preference for admissions. Further, receipt of a completed application by January 15th is required if an applicant wishes to be considered for a $1,500 Academic Merit Scholarship.
