Students are assigned an academic advisor from the OT Department upon admission to the program who helps guide course planning and monitors student progress throughout the program. Academic advisors work closely with students during academic advising sessions and share information about policy and requirement changes during registration periods as well as throughout the academic year. Students are also expected to take an active role in verifying expectations and should check with departmental advisers each September for updated policies and requirements. Program requirements and policies for retention in the major are posted annually in the OT Department Policy and Procedure Manual, which is available on the OT Department Organization site on Blackboard. Students are expected to ensure that they have updated information on the Department’s current policies and procedures.
