If you are pursuing occupational therapy programs outside of the articulation agreement, please research your programs of interest, as their requirements may vary.
If you are pursuing programs outside of the articulation agreement, you should consider completing the General Records Exam (GRE). The GRE is a computer-adaptive test offered hundreds of times per year in a variety of locations. There is a fee-reduction program that discounts the exam by 50% for those who qualify. Please note: You must apply for fee assistance well in advance of taking the GRE, at least 30 days. The Millers Analogy Test (MAT) is sometimes accepted.
