Thank you for your interest in graduate study at Baylor University.
We welcome applications from all qualified candidates who hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Applicants apply to the program through the OTCAS application system.
The Baylor University Department of Occupational Therapy embraces diversity and takes a holistic approach to admitting qualified applicants to the program. A holistic approach to admissions means that we view the entire student application packet before making a decision regarding admission to the program. The holistic admission process is driven by the University’s mission and vision to educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community in order to promote achievement of educational and institutional level goals.
We know that recent events may have impacted your academic portfolio and we are taking that into consideration when reviewing application materials. We encourage all students who are interested in our unique hybrid, accelerated model to schedule a time to discuss your specific questions and qualifications with our Admissions Program Manager. We can provide guidance on options for continuing in the application process and what accommodations may be made regarding the admissions criteria given your individual circumstances.
