Awarded a 10-year accreditation in 2012

Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT), 12 South Summit Avenue Suite 100, Gaithersburg, MD 20877-4150, telephone: 301.990.7979, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

(Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or obtain a state license.)
