Occupational Therapy is a rapidly growing profession that provides services to children and adults of all ages whose lives have been disrupted by physical injury or illness, developmental problems, the aging process, and psychosocial dysfunction.

The Occupational Therapy Assistant Program at SLCC offers a 2-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, which enables graduates to work in settings like acute care hospitals, rehabilitation centers/clinics, psychiatric hospitals, community living facilities, home health agencies, community mental health centers, school systems, and nursing homes. Graduates from our program consistently demonstrate excellent passing rates for the Utah State licensure certification.

All of the programs offered in the School of Health Sciences at Salt Lake Community College are a part of the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), a regional accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This means that the credits that you complete at SLCC will transfer to all the other state institutions, as well as most private institutions, so that you will not have to start over in obtaining a bachelors degree or higher. This is an added bonus for SLCC student that is not always available at all health sciences programs around the city, state or country.
