The Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE®) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) is officially recognized as the accrediting agency for entry-level educational programs for the occupational therapist and occupational therapy assistant in the United States and its territories. The U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation require that a list of accredited educational programs be published annually.
The following entry-level programs are accredited by ACOTE. The status of accreditation includes the following categories:
  • Accreditation—The program is in substantial compliance with the 2011 ACOTE Standards (hereinafter called the Standards; AOTA, 2012).

  • Probationary Accreditation—At the occasion of its most recent review, the program was not in substantial compliance with one or more of the Standards.

All programs listed as accredited hold one of the above accreditation statuses. Designation of the specific status is not included on this list. For specific information, contact the program directly.
On-site evaluations for program accreditation are conducted at 5- or 7-year intervals for initial accreditation and 5-, 7-, or 10-year intervals for continuing accreditation.
