Occupational Therapy Assistant Online Program Coursework

Our Online Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program takes a blended learning approach, with 80% online and 20% on-site curriculum. The online courses carry the same expectations as a traditional, classroom-based OTA program—with the main difference being the delivery of the OTA and Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) coursework.

Delivered through a dynamic e-Learning platform, our online courses let you complete the required mix of OTA and LAS classes when and where it is most convenient for you and engage with the coursework materials at your own pace—just as long as you meet the deadlines set forth by your instructors.
