Change in Application Process
The UNC Master of Science program in Occupational Therapy is moving to the use of the Occupational Therapy Centralized Application Service (OTCAS). OTCAS is a program of the American Occupational Therapy Association that allows prospective students to use one application system to apply to multiple participating OT programs. Each program customizes OTCAS to include application materials and requirements for their program, and the UNC program will continue to have the same prerequisite, essay, recommendation letter, experience with OT, and other requirements as in the past.
The move to the use of OTCAS will begin in mid-to-late February, and may not be complete until the summer of 2022. As soon as our application system is fully functional, information will be posted on this page outlining how to apply. In the meantime, prospective applicants can be working toward the prerequisite and other requirements as noted on this website for uploading and documenting in the application at a later date. Applications will be due on a date TBA in early December 2022.
Thank you for your patience as we complete this change in application systems.
