Additional Information

Application Materials Needed:

The OT program has a 2-step application process. Interested applicants should first complete the entirety of the OTCAS common application, then must complete the ECU application which requires fewer supplemental documents. The ECU application process will include completion of the online application and payment of the application fee. Additional transcripts may be required.

Descriptions of all requirements are listed on the Occupational Therapy website at https://ot.ecu.edu/how-do-i-apply/. Questions about the application requirements may be directed to OTADMISSIONS@ecu.edu.

To reserve your place in the Occupational Therapy (MS) program once admitted, you will need to send a non-refundable deposit of US $500 prior to the deadline indicated in your acceptance materials. This US $500 will be credited towards your tuition when you enroll at East Carolina University; if you do not enroll, your deposit will be forfeited.
