Explore The Program
The two-year, entry-level, MSOT program is an 80-credit full time program consisting of a fully online first semester with all other didactic content delivered in person during daytime, weekday classes with some evening commitments.
The program begins at the end of May, with the first four courses fully online using a combination of synchronous and asynchronous methods (See Technology and Required Competencies below). Students then arrive to campus in August for a condensed 3-week Anatomy and Physiology Course with full dissection cadaver lab. All courses are sequential.
The curriculum is designed to provide an excellent education for students planning for professional roles as occupational therapy practitioners in traditional settings, as well as in areas of newly identified need. All qualified students are awarded a Master of Science degree after successful completion of the coursework. In addition to online and face to face didactic coursework, the program also requires completion of both level I and level II fieldwork experiences, and a master capstone project.

All transcripts can be sent directly to your application in OTCAS.
Competitive applicants will hold have a minimum 3.0 GPA in their prerequisite courses and cumulative record. Note: All completed courses will be used in the GPA calculated by OTCAS.

All references are submitted as part of your OTCAS application.
In an effort to support our applicants from across the country, we have made the recent decision to waive/suspend the GRE or MAT exam requirement until further notice. This applies to students applying for summer 2021 or summer 2022 enrollment.
This decision was made as access to testing centers and at home testing has been inconsistent by city and state, making it difficult to fairly assess candidates for this admission requirement. Applicants who have already submitted scores will have their scores reviewed only to their benefit.
Should you wish to submit scores, please use the following codes to have your scores sent electronically to Le Moyne:
GRE School Code = 2366
MAT School Code = 3112
The OTCAS application will prompt you to submit a personal statement with your application.
Your personal essay should address why you selected OT as a career and how an Occupational Therapy degree relates to your immediate and long term professional goals. Describe how your personal, educational, and professional background will help you to achieve your goals.
Interviews are extended and completed as applications are reviewed for admission. You will be contacted to schedule your interview directly by the department. More information on your interview will be provided to you, should an interview invitation be extended.
In an effort to make interview opportunities accessible to all applicants, all interviews are conducted virtually.
Competitive applicants will have no more than two outstanding prerequisite courses (including courses in progress) at the time of application.
Applicants with outstanding prerequisite courses that are not shown as "in progress" on the OTCAS application, must let the Office of Admission know their plans to complete these requirements.If you have outstanding prerequisite requirements at the time of application, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your details on how you plan to complete these courses.
Please note: The Le Moyne College Occupational Therapy Program does not grant advanced placement, give credit for or accept transfer of credit for OT therapy courses or seminars. The chair of the occupational therapy program has the authority to substitute a prerequisite course if such a substituted course is deemed to cover similar material satisfactorily.

The admission committee is aware that the global pandemic has made securing observation hours very difficult for some applicants.
Students are encouraged to apply asap, even if they are working to finish their required 30 hours of observation, as our committee will review those considerations case by case during the admission process.
In addition, Quinnipiac University (author Cheryl B. Lucas, EdD, OTR/L) has recently released an online shadowing experience that will count for our observation hour requirement. Students can take advantage of this free learning module online here (password: LucasQU).
The module is estimated to provide you with an additional 10 hours of observation experience.
OTCAS will prompt you to report your observation hours in the application. There is no supplemental documentation required.
International applicants must have a course-by-course transcript evaluation completed by one of the member organizations of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

Students should reference our Campus Technology Website for detailed suggestions before purchase.
The Le Moyne MSOT program consists of a fully online first semester, with the remaining didactic content delivered in person during daytime, weekday classes with some evening commitments and a fully online first semester. Success in both the online and in person portions of the program requires students to have the ability to navigate the College's learning management system (Canvas), manage electronic communications, utilize research and information databases, and apply software. Online courses will consist of a combination of scheduled synchronous and asynchronous learning activities; synchronous sessions will require use of the Zoom platform. In person courses will maximize the use of technology with no seat time reduction, using the Canvas learning management system for administration, communication, assessment and content delivery to both supplement and enhance the face to face experience. Prior to starting coursework, all students will be required to complete an online orientation through Canvas that will prepare them to meet the technology requirements of the online portions of the program. Additionally, students will have ongoing access to the IT service desk to manage questions or concerns with technology while in the program.
