Healthcare Studies/Occupational Therapy

Applicants applying for entry to the first year of the B.S. Healthcare Studies/M.S. Occupational Therapy program must meet the following criteria:

  • combined SAT 1030 for Math and Verbal (or ACT of 20)
  • a high school average of 85 (3.0) GPA
  • one letter of recommendation
  • successful completion of courses in math, biology and chemistry; physics and psychology are recommended but not required
  • a written essay

Students currently enrolled at Husson University can apply to transfer into the program from another major within the first two years of general undergraduate study. Students from another institution may also apply to transfer into Husson University. All transfer students must meet the same criteria for grades and GPA as students who are enrolled from the first year and will be expected to fulfill the requirements for the BS in Health Care Studies. Finally, transfer students are also required to complete an essay provided by the School of Occupational Therapy. Applicants may be admitted to the Healthcare Studies major prior to completing these requirements and then apply to transfer into the OT track once these requirements are completed.
