Occupational Therapy

Baylor University discloses that  Doctor of Occupational Therapy program will fulfill state/territory educational requirements for professional licenses.

Some state licensing boards require additional requirements beyond education, which may include (but are not limited to): additional post-graduation examinations or experience, application and licensing fees, criminal background checks, reference checks, fingerprint submissions, etc. Continuing education may also be required for maintenance of certification/licensure. Make sure you understand and review any additional requirements prior to enrolling in the Doctor of Occupational Therapy program.

State licensing requirements are always subject to change at the discretion of the state licensing board. The University will routinely update this page, but we strongly recommend you inquire with the applicable state board to confirm your eligibility for licensure prior to enrolling in the Doctor of Occupational Therapy program. For any questions regarding licensure, please contact the state/territory agency directly.

Licensing requirements vary by state/territory and relocating could impact whether you will meet eligibility requirements for licensure. For any questions about relocation eligibility, contact the agency where you desire licensure before relocating to ensure that you will be eligible for licensure or reciprocity.

Carefully review the educational prerequisites for your intended state/territory of licensure and whether our program meets those requirements for licensure. Use the agency contact information provided below to clarify or confirm any requirements.

If questions remain after reviewing the information provided below, contact your program advisor. While the University can provide initial guidance, it is ultimately your responsibility to continually check with the state/territory where you intend to seek licensure to confirm all licensing/certification requirements.

The State Licensing Requirements should indicate if the program curriculum Meets the requirements in these states and US Territories, Does NOT Meet the requirement in these states and US Territories or Undetermined if the program has not yet determined if the curriculum requirements are met for these states and US Territories.
