Application Process FAQ - Occupational Therapy
Do you interview candidates for your program and what is the format?
Yes. Individual and group interviews are conducted for the most competitive applicants to the Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) program. Typically, about 80 invited students are interviewed each year. Interview dates typically take place in December and January. The class size is anticipated to be 40 students.
If I am reapplying, what do I need to do?
Students will be required to send in all new materials, transcripts, OTCAS application, occupational therapy supplemental application and any other required documents. Records of past applicants are not kept on file at UT Health San Antonio.
Where else can I get tips on applying?
We hold Open House Workshops typically in late spring through early fall leading up to the application cycle deadline. Questions will be answered at these workshops including tips on how to apply and recommendations to strengthen your application will be shared. To attend a workshop, you must RSVP in advance. The event is free and recommended for prospective applicants who are within two years applying. Please note that the Department of Occupational Therapy does an annual review of the required admission requirements. Be sure to check our website for updated requirements information and plan accordingly for the application cycle which you anticipate applying for. We recommend annual attendance to the Open House Workshop event in case there are changes in the application process from year to year.
