USAHS is happy to announce a change in our admissions policy for our occupational therapy programs: We are no longer requiring that incoming OT students take the GRE exam.
We’re aware that COVID-19 is creating significant practical challenges to students who wish to take the GRE. We see the opportunity to respond with empathy, and to make things easier for you. Learn more about our streamlined admissions process by speaking with an enrollment advisor today!
We’re proud of our 567 graduates for rolling with the challenges of 2020! Not only did they successfully complete their studies during a pandemic—they had to pop the champagne at home. Our Fall graduations went virtual on four USAHS campuses, celebrating graduates from our physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology programs.
Graduates created slides about themselves for a slide show that was a centerpiece of the ceremonies. They thanked their support people and shared words about how they will be a “force for good” in their chosen profession. Faculty and staff members also made encouraging video messages. Check out some highlights!
