THIS IS A 2 YEAR PROGRAM AND UPON COMPLETION STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE AN A.S. DEGREE
CHANGE IN FORMAT: Beginning Spring 2016 the format of classes will be the same for either the spring or fall start. In the new format both sections will have certain lecture classes online and certain lecture classes on-campus. Lab classes will remain on-campus as they have been.
In order to take online courses students will need to have a computer with access to the internet and a working email address. Students will need to have basic skills in internet access and word processing. Once enrolled in the class, there are two students tutorials on the Blackboard site to guide the student in use of the system.
Spring Class Enrollment Format
- On campus lecture and lab classes will meet on campus twice a week
from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. during the first, second, and third semesters.
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. No courses are offered during the
winter or summer semesters.
Fall Class Enrollment Format - On campus lecture and lab classes will meet on campus twice a week from 3:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. during the first and second semester. In the third semester on-campus classes will start at 3:00 pm one day a week and at noon one day a week. 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 field work 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.
