Applications NOW OPEN for the Meridian or Pocatello campus!
Applications are now open for the Class of 2026 to start in August 2023 in Meridian or Pocatello.
We offer one application process for either campus. After students are accepted into the program, they will be asked about their campus preference. After campus preferences are submitted, the admissions committee will meet to make campus assignments. While committee members will attempt to honor campus preferences, the student preferred campus is not guaranteed.
Application Process (Meridian & Pocatello)
- Every applicant must complete an online application to the ISU Graduate School
- AND every applicant must apply to the MOT program via Occupational Therapy Centralized Application Service (OTCAS)
Academic and other credentials will be reviewed competitively and an interview may be required prior to acceptance. Applicants should be aware that although they may meet minimal entry-level requirements it does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Although the MOT program does accept non-resident and international students, the majority of seats are given to qualified Idaho residents in accordance with the mission of the university. Students will be selected on a competitive basis. Those who are offered seats in the program and who wish to attend should submit the Acceptance Form at that time to ensure their seat is reserved.
The ISU Occupational Therapy Program accepts applications on a rolling basis, however, completed applications received by January 15th will receive preference for admissions. Further, receipt of a completed application by January 15th is required if an applicant wishes to be considered for a $1,500 Academic Merit Scholarship.
All applicants to the MOT program must apply to and pay a $120 fee to the ISU Graduate School.
Applicants will also pay a fee via OTCAS for that service ($125 for 1 program, $45 for each additional program).
Successful applicants will be asked to submit a MOT Acceptance/Seat Confirmation Fee of $300.00 to: MOT, 921 S. 8th Avenue- Stop 8045, Pocatello, ID 83209. This Acceptance/Seat Confirmation fee is applied to the student's tuition for the first semester.
