Carroll University offers an opportunity  to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Studies and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy through a partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Occupational  therapy is a profession whose unique focus is on occupation and daily life activities that promote full participation in life roles as an active member of a community.  The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee offers a full array of occupational  therapy education which allows students completing a Master's degree to be eligible to take the national Occupational Therapy certification examination.  Students are prepared for Master's level study through the Bachelor of Science Occupational Studies Program. Students who complete this undergraduate program will need to meet all admission criteria to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee  Graduate School for admission to the Master of Science program.  The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's occupational therapy entry level program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE).

Students interested in Occupational Therapy spend two years satisfying general education requirements and prerequisites at Carroll University required for the professional years of study at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  To progress into the undergraduate junior year, Carroll University pre-occupational  therapy students must apply for admission to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's occupational studies professional program in the spring of their sophomore year.

Admission/Progression Requirements

Entry into the professional phase of the undergraduate Occupational  Studies program is competitive and dependent  upon multiple requirements.  The admission/progression requirements for the Occupational Studies program are presented in the Admissions sections of the Catalog.

Caregiver Background Check

All students admitted  to the Occupational Studies Program will be required  to complete a Background Information Disclosure form (HFS-64).  A background check, which identifies a past criminal record, does not necessarily preclude  an individual from pursuing studies in occupational therapy or becoming a successful practitioner. Should there be a discrepancy between  the information reported by the student on HFS-64 and the reports issued by the Department  of Justice and the Department of Health and Family Services, the student will be subject to dismissal from the occupational therapy program and then reported to DHFS per HFS 12.20 (1)©,  Wis. Adm. Code.
