Selecting OTA Schools in Louisiana

While you are researching and comparing schools and OTA programs, make sure to consider the following criteria points for each occupational therapist assistant program you evaluate:

  • Size of classes and program
  • Graduation Rate and COTA Exam passing rate
  • Facilities and quality of resources
  • Complete breakdown of expenses and financial aid available
  • Specific admissions criteria for the OTA Program

It may be helpful to reach out and survey alumni from each OTA program about their experience at that college. Another great insight for information on each OTA school are the local health clinics that hire graduating students and offer clinical training to students. The OTs and OTAs at these offices may be able to tell you a lot about the program.
