MSOT Graduation Requirements

Master’s degree students must achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in order to graduate. Only those graduate level courses in which a student earns the equivalent of a 2.0 or better may be applied toward the total number of credits required for graduation.  In addition, students in the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program must achieve a passing grade in all fieldwork experiences.  Students in the MSOT program must also complete the Level IIB fieldwork courses within 12 months following completion of the theory and fieldwork components of Terms 1 through Term 6.

In order to graduate, students in the MSOT program must complete a minimum of 16 community service hours by the end of the program.

Students must pass all courses within a program in order to graduate. Students must achieve a grade of C or better to pass individual courses in the MSOT program. In order to achieve a passing grade, the student must complete all required assignments and meet attendance requirements for the course.  Students in the MSOT program must maintain a grade point average of B (3.0) or above in order to graduate.  Students failing a course in the MSOT program must repeat the course and are prohibited from taking courses where the failed course is a pre-requisite.

The Term Exit Exam and End of Program Examination exams are graded as PASS or FAIL. Students will have two attempts to pass the Term Exit Exam or End of Program Exams.  If students fail the remediation attempt, they will need to meet with the Program Director for advisement.  Students who fail to successfully remediate a failed Term Exit Exam or Program Exit Examination will be dismissed from the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program.  Students may only remediate one Level I fieldwork course and one Level II fieldwork course per enrollment.

Students who withdraw will receive a grade of “INC” for the course in progress. Enrolled students who do not complete a course on time will receive a grade of “F” within twenty-one (21) days after the conclusion of the course if assignments have not been completed.

Students may remediate only one of the three Level I fieldwork courses if one of the courses is failed.  A student may remediate a failed Level II fieldwork course 1 time.  Two failed Level I fieldwork courses will result in dismissal from the program.  Two failed Level II fieldwork courses will result in dismissal from the program.
