Fall (Online/evenings/weekend) Class Format - Lecture classes are online and lab classes meet on-campus, twice a week, from 6-9 p.m during the 1st-3rd semester. Students are also required to complete 32 hours of Level I fieldwork per semester. In addition to this, during the third semester students will also have to attend 12 mandatory Saturday classes from 9-12 p.m. During the fourth (final) semester students are required to complete two eight week full-time (40 hours a week) Level II fieldwork rotations.
Spring (On-campus) Class Format - All classes meet on-campus, twice a week, from 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. during the 1st-3rd semester. In addition to this, students are also required to complete 32 hours of Level I fieldwork per semester. During the fourth (final) semester students are required to complete two eight week full-time (40 hours a week) Level II fieldwork rotations.
Program Duration - Our program takes two years to complete, with classes only being offered during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students are not able to partially enroll in our program; which means that all courses need to be taken during the appropriate sequencing pattern. Also, students are not able to enroll in any OTA courses unless they have been admitted into the program.
Cost of the OTA Program - $46.00 per unit. Therefore, the estimated cost for the major coursework is about $2,100 (for residents of California). It is important to note that this estimate does not include any general education requirements, textbooks, or miscellaneous student fees.

The format during which a student BEGINS the program is the format in which they will be enrolled during the entire
two years. For example, students that begin the program in Spring 2015 will have all of their classes during the 1st-3rd semesters on campus, twice a week, from 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
