Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (Alphabetical Listing)

PLEASE NOTE: The following curriculum is based on requirements at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. It is a doctoral-level program that requires a bachelor’s degree, so students should pick a relevant academic major in order to complete appropriate coursework requirements. “Pre-OT” is NOT an academic major! Admission to any OT program is extremely competitive and usually requires observation hours along with a superb academic record. Specific requirements for schools can vary widely. Students should check with the occupational therapy program of their choice for a current list of application requirements.

 

Program Requirements:


The following advisement plan is a recommended course of study. Academic programs offered at Jones College are designed to meet the educational needs and advancement of students who plan to transfer course credit to a university and complete a bachelor’s degree. As part of each academic program, students will take courses to meet the Jones College’s general education core requirements and electives as determined by the student and his/her faculty advisor. All academic programs are designed to lead to an Associate of Arts degree.

To streamline the transfer of credit from Jones College to any university in the State of Mississippi, Jones College participates in the articulation agreement between the Mississippi Community College Board and the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning. For the purpose of ensuring transfer-ability within Mississippi, the Mississippi Articulation Transfer Tool (MATT) shall be used to advise and guide students in choosing the best courses to take as part of the requirements to graduate from Jones College with an Associate of Arts degree.

If there are questions, current students should contact their faculty adviser and potential students should contact Enrollment Services  .
