OTA Admissions Process
Ready to get started on your OTA career? Follow these steps to apply for the St. Catherine’s OTA Online Program.
Speak to an Admissions Advisor
Before getting too far into the application process for the online OTA program, you should contact an admissions advisor.
Your advisor will work with you personally to determine program eligibility, help you determine which prerequisites you must complete, and guide you through the admissions process from start to finish.
Your advisor will help you create an education timeline with a target start date, application due dates, and various other important dates and deadlines to keep you moving forward toward your goal.
Submit an Application
Once you and your advisor have determined you have met all of the program requirements, you can apply for the OTA Online Program through the St. Catherine University application portal.
Send Official Transcripts
Once you have submitted your application, you must then submit all official transcripts from your high school and any colleges or universities you have attended. Contact the registrar’s office of each academic institution to request that all official transcripts be sent directly to St. Catherine University.
Transcripts may be sent electronically or via postal mail. Physical transcripts should be submitted by the issuing institution to St. Catherine in a sealed envelope bearing the institution’s college or university seal.
Transcripts can be sent to:
OTA Online Admissions
St. Catherine University
2004 Randolph Ave. #4067
St. Paul, MN 55105
For those who have completed the General Education Development (GED) exam, scores must also be sent.
Transcripts should be sent from all post-secondary institutions attended, including college, university, technical, business, armed forced, medical, and professional schools, regardless of whether credits were earned. Transcripts for any advanced placement courses taken in high school should also be included.
Be sure to list all schools attended. Failure to list all schools may be cause for denial and/or dismissal.
Before starting the online OTA program, you must complete four college-level prerequisites.
Talk to your advisor about any existing college credits you have – some may meet the prerequisite requirements.
Can my credits transfer?
If you already have some college experience, you may be able to leverage those credits. Your advisor will work with you to determine whether any credits you currently have can count towards the OTA degree requirements.
