Entry-Level Master’s Program Deadline- November 30th
Today, November 30th is the application deadline for the Entry-Level Master’s Program. The admissions committee is looking forward to reviewing your applications!
Please note that an application is not considered complete and ready for review until it has been verified by OTCAS, official GRE scores have been received, and three letters of recommendation have been received. For an application to be considered “on time,” all of these conditions should have been met by end of day today, November 30th.
Applications that become complete and verified after the deadline are welcome and will be processed on a space available basis. The OTCAS deadline has been extended to allow for these late submissions. The application deadline for this program is November 30th and this has not changed, however OTCAS now indicates that the deadline is May 15th to make it possible for applicants to submit a late application. We strongly recommend submitting your application as soon as possible if you are still interested in being considered for the Summer 2018 start date, as the actual application deadline is today. These late applications will be reviewed, although their late submission may cause a delay in their review and in your decision notification date. As always, please feel free to contact us directly with any questions you may have.
The admissions committee hopes to be in touch with all applicants whose applications were complete and verified by the November 30th deadline by the end of February with admissions decisions. Thank you for your interest in the occupational therapy programs here at USC!
