Oakland Community College

Occupational Therapy Assistant

An Occupational Therapy Assistant works under the supervision of a registered Occupational Therapist to provide skilled treatment to individuals of all ages with physical, developmental, social and emotional problems. OT Assistants help these people achieve the independence necessary to perform the activities of daily living.

Oakland Community College and Macomb Community College have established a reciprocal arrangement for the Occupational Therapist Assistant (OTA) program. Although the specialized courses for the programs are given at Macomb South Center Campus, students who complete a minimum of 19 specific credit hours at OCC and are Oakland County Residents are eligible to participate in this reciprocal arrangement. This means that upon completion of the courses at OCC and acceptance into the Macomb Community College’s Occupational Therapist Assistant (OTA) program, the student will take all the OTA courses at MCC and will pay in in-district tuition to Macomb Community College.
