UNH Internal Transfer Student Admission
The UNH Occupational Therapy program is a combined BS/MS professional degree program that takes 5½-years to complete beginning the Freshmen year. After the senior year, students completing all UNH undergraduate degree requirements, and the Bachelors of Occupational Science requirements are awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Science. Students then enter the Master’s portion of the program with advanced standing, and complete the program with a Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy. Graduates are then eligible to take to the NBCOT board exam to become a registered occupational therapist. Please see the OT department website for program details.
UNH undergraduate students may apply to transfer into the BS/MS OT Professional Program during their first semester sophomore year ONLY. If accepted, internal transfer students will enter the major as second semester sophomores. To apply for transfer into the program, students must have plan to complete all undergraduate OT major, and UNH requirements by the end of the senior year. At the time of application it is desirable that students have completed or be enrolled in: English 401, Psychology 401, OT 510, Exploring Occupational Therapy and Occupation, OT 500 Child Development, Statistics, Anatomy and Physiology (BMS 507, 508), and several other UNH Discovery courses. Applicants are encouraged to meet with Dr. Shelley Mulligan to develop their plan to complete all course requirements through the senior year (contact info below).

Admission decisions are based on a number of factors including: academic achievement, the applicant’s understanding of occupational therapy and evidence of an informed decision about entering the field, the applicant’s personal qualities that would allow for success in a health care field, and references who can attest to the applicant’s academic potential for completing the program successfully. The UNH OT Department often receives more applications than there are spaces available, making the admissions process competitive. Not all qualified applicants are offered admission. All applicants will be notified in writing of the decision on their application prior to registration for the spring semester.
