The pre-occupational therapy program is an advising program through which a student can prepare for admission to a professional occupational therapy program at another institution. CWU does not offer a degree program in occupational therapy or pre-occupational therapy, but does offer all prerequisite courses necessary for successful admission to the professional phase at another university.

Most pre-occupational therapy students will complete their undergraduate degree at CWU and then apply to the program(s) of their choice. Detailed information concerning appropriate undergraduate coursework and professional occupational therapy programs in the Pacific Northwest is available in the Department of Psychology or by visiting www.cwu.edu/biology/pre-professional-programs-pre-occupational-therapy. 

Pre-Professional Programs Information


These programs are planned for two groups of students-those who want one or two years of college work prior to entering an occupation, and those who want to do pre-professional work for one, two, three, or four years before entering a professional school, university, or college.

The programs described are not to be considered unalterable. They represent patterns that generally agree with the requirements of many professional schools. Since there are many variations in the requirements of the professional schools, students should, after consulting the CWU catalog, select courses required by the institution from which they expect to earn a degree.

The following pre-professional programs are offered: pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-dietetics, pre-engineering, pre-law, pre-medical technology, pre-medicine, pre-nursing in public health, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-veterinary.
