Occupational Therapy Accreditation

The Occupational Therapy program at Davenport University has received Candidacy Status from Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) and is moving through the typical two-year accreditation process. Candidacy Status indicates that Davenport University may enroll students into the program and conduct occupational therapy courses and fieldwork. Candidacy Status does not guarantee that a program will become accredited at the end of the accreditation process. However, Candidacy Status indicates that ACOTE has thoroughly reviewed the program’s candidacy application and has determined that the program’s plans and resources provide evidence of the program’s ability to meet ACOTE standards and requirements leading to accreditation. The accreditation decision will be made by ACOTE prior to graduation of the first admission class.  Following accreditation of an Occupational Therapy program, graduates are eligible to sit for the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) examination.  Students must graduate from an ACOTE accredited program and successfully pass the NBCOT exam in order to apply for a state license to practice and work as an occupational therapist.
