Early Admission Option

The Towson University Occupational Therapy MS Program offers an Early Admission option for qualified applicants. Up to 25% of the entering class may be admitted through early admission, which guarantees those admitted a position in the program. The selection process for early admission is based on a full review of all admission materials. Any applicant not admitted early will automatically be included in the pool for regular admission.

Early Admission Eligibility Requirements

Early admissions applicants must meet all regular admission requirements detailed on the Admission Requirements & Deadlines page. You must also meet the following additional requirements to be eligible for early admission consideration:

  • 60+ Last-60-Credit GPA: You must have a minimum GPA of 3.60 based on the last 60 credits of undergraduate and graduate course work. Full detail about the last-60-credit GPA calculation is available on the Admission Requirements & Deadlines page.
  • All Prerequisites Complete: You must have all prerequisites complete with the required grades by the early admission application deadline. Full prerequisite details, including required grades, are available on the Admission Requirements & Deadlines page.
  • Complete, Verified OTCAS Application by October 1: A complete application must be verified by OTCAS by October 1. It can take as many as 4-6 weeks for OTCAS to verify transcripts; therefore, it will be necessary to submit materials as early as possible.
  • Request for Early Admission Consideration: You must submit a formal letter by October 1 via email or traditional mail indicating the desire to be reviewed for early admission. If your letter is received after October 1, your application will not be reviewed early and will automatically be included in the pool for regular admission.
