Effective Fall 2011, Psych 140 (Psychology of Adulthood and Aging) and Psych 157 (Intro to Child Psychology) or HUD 107 (Child Growth and Development) will no longer be a part of the core classes for the OTA program. They will be replaced by an OTA class entitled Human Occupation Across Lifespan. This change was made in response to a suggestion during our onsite ACOTE accreditation visit in April 2010.

In the past, student have been advised that Psych 140, Psych 157 or HUD 107, were classes that could be taken while waiting to apply to the OTA program. If you have taken BOTH of these courses any time prior to Spring 2011 they will be accepted. However, they will not be accepted as a core class if they were taken in Spring 2011 or later. This change will only impact students starting the program in Fall 2011 and later. There is no change in the four prerequisite courses to get into the program. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions.
