Accreditation

The Occupational Therapy Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE), of the American Occupational Therapy Association. Graduation from an ACOTE-accredited program is a requirement for eligibility to take the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy exam (NBCOT). Successful completion of this examination forms the basis for the regulation of practice. A prior felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to take the NBCOT examination and/or attain state licensure. The licensing authority for occupational therapists in the Commonwealth of Virginia is the Department of Health Professions of the Virginia Board of Medicine. Licensing information for other states can be found on the AOTA website.

Effective December 6, 2013, the occupational therapy program was granted full accreditation for a period of ten years (2012/13 – 2022/23) by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).
