Professional Certification
Graduates of the entry-level Doctor of Occupational Therapy pathway are eligible to sit for the
national certification examination for the Occupational Therapist, administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).

After successful completion of this examination, the individual will be certified as an occupational therapist, Registered (OTR). Many states require licensure in order to practice. However, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. A felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure.

Where licensure and/or state regulatory laws are in effect, therapists must follow state guidelines.
