Progression Requirements

Beginning in the 2014-15 academic year and for the Class of 2016, students are eligible to progress in the MScOT program if they meet all of the requirements below:

With the exception of fieldwork courses, students have one chance to successfully complete Occupational Therapy courses. Students who fail to meet these criteria must withdraw from the program. Such students may petition the Director of the School of Occupational Therapy on medical or compassionate grounds for permission to progress. Should permission be granted, the conditions to be met by the student will be specified by the Director.

For any course delivered in modular format, students are required to achieve a minimum of 65% in each module and 75% overall in the course in order to pass the course. Any student who fails two fieldwork placements (same fieldwork course failed twice or two different fieldwork courses failed once), is required to withdraw from the program permanently.

Students in the Class of 2015 will be required to maintain the progression requirements that applied when they started the program. Consult the student handbook for more information.
