Occupational Therapy Professional Programs - Costs & Financial Aid

A USciences education just became more affordable.

In fall 2018, for students who are accepted into our accelerated, 6-year occupational therapy doctoral program,  we’ve lowered and simplified the tuition and general fee*.

So you’ll know the full price to earn that degree from the day you begin—no hidden fees, additional price increases, or surprises during the course of your education—making the tuition equation easier to understand.

* This pricing does not include room and board or any professional, clinical, or transportation fees.

  • This pricing includes a general University fee, which remains consistent throughout the course of your enrollment in your program of study.
  • Additional classes outside your program of study will be charged at current established per credit rate.
  • You can take up to a year away from school without your tuition schedule changing.
  • General scholarships are available including merit, legacy, sibling, and athletic.
