Choosing Between OTA Schools in Missouri

Researching and comparing occupational therapy assistant schools is the first step to your OTA education. When evaluating OTA programs, consider each of the following:

  • # of students at college and within the OTA program
  • Passing rates for the school, program, and COTA Exam
  • Campus facilities and program resources
  • Complete overview of expenses and financial aid
  • Any specific/unique admissions criteria

A great source of information are alumni from the programs you are evaluating as well as employers that hire students from the programs. Ask admissions officers which local health clinics hire their graduates so that you can reach out to speak with alumni and working professional OTs/OTAs that are familiar with the program.
