Pre-Occupational Therapy

OT and patient

Did you know: Occupational therapy is ranked #10 as the best health care job by US News and World Report in 2021.

Students planning on gaining admission to occupational therapy school must successfully combine an academic major with the specific prerequisite requirements. Most occupational therapy schools are not selective in your degree. A student should select the best degree for them. Factors to consider:

  • How efficient is the degree?
  • What are your passions?
  • What would you do if you did not become an occupational therapist?
  • Where do you feel most confident academically?

If students are deciding which major is best for them, we can help! Meet with a pre-health advisor through our College of Health Science Student Services and Academic Advising Office.

The Pre-Occupational Therapy Pathway is a non-degree program available at Boise State University. You will not earn a degree in Pre-Occupational Therapy.
