Welcome to the Occupational Therapy Program at Stony Brook University. We hope that the information provided here will help you understand the program of study, admission requirements and answer some frequently asked questions about Occupational Therapy.
Stony Brook Occupational Therapy is a recognized accredited program in a nationally acclaimed university. Consistent with the School of Health Technology and Management Mission Statement, we in the Occupational Therapy program provide the highest quality education that fosters inter-disciplinary research, critical thinking, evidence-based practice and leadership.
This multi-award three year program leads to a BS Health Science/MS Occupational Therapy degree. Students complete the undergraduate course work during the first year and a half of the program, and then complete the graduate course work during the last 18 months of the program. All applicants enter the program as Junior level undergraduates and then advance to the graduate level half way through the three years of study.
On behalf of the faculty, staff, students, and alumni of the Occupational Therapy Program at Stony Brook University I would like to wish you well on your journey towards becoming an occupational therapist and hope you seriously consider making Stony Brook your choice. I encourage you to browse through this website and enjoy the vidoes and pictures posted by our students, as well as their monthly SOTA newsletters which can all be found under the tab of Student Perspectives.
Please consider visiting us at one of our monthly Information Sessions or making an appointment to meet a member of the faculty individually.
Eva Rodriguez , PhD., OTR/L

The School of Health Technology and Management and the Occupational therapy Program announce that the weekend OTA to OT format will no longer accept applications for admissions. We welcome all interested applicants to apply to our full time weekday format program via OTCAS at https://portal.otcas.org.
The weekend OTA to OT format program was launched in 2007 with a three year grant from the State Education Department. 31 students have graduated with a multi degree BS Health Science/MS Occupational therapy degrees in the classes of 2010 and 2011. We expect to have the remainder of our present students complete the program in 2013, and 2014 respectively.
Graduate Records Examination (GRE) are not required, since all applicants enter at the undergraduate portion of the program.
Applications are available through OTCAS (Occupational Therapy Central Application System). The link for OTCAS is: https://portal.otcas.org.
