Salus University has teamed with the Drexel University Health Sciences Department of the College of Nursing and Health Professions to acknowledge their commitment to the training of future occupational therapists by joining in an articulation agreement.

Under the joint agreement, up to four select undergraduate students from Drexel University, who successfully complete all necessary requirements, may continue their education in occupational therapy studies at Salus University in the 4+2 BS/MSOT degree program of study.

The 4+2 BS/MSOT Program is a sequential degree program that encourages qualified Drexel Health Sciences graduates to pursue a graduate degree in Occupational Therapy at Salus University.  Students first complete a 4-year Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Health Sciences from Drexel University and then enroll into the 2-year Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) program at Salus University.  

Those selected for the 4+2 degree program must be enrolled in the Drexel Health Sciences Program and complete all BS degree requirements before enrolling into the Salus MSOT program. Candidates must maintain good standing with a GPA of 3.25 or above. In addition, candidates must complete the Salus MSOT prerequisite course work with a grade of "B" or better and a successful interview by the Salus University Occupational Therapy Department. 

By October 1st, the year before anticipated enrollment into the Salus MSOT Program, a candidate must complete application process and criteria to the program, including application through OTCAS, 50 hours of documented observation experience, letters of recommendation and entrance exam. For more details, please see the Application Process Criteria & Prerequisite page.
