BIO-2330 and BIO-2340 together will be accepted in place of BIO-2331 Anatomy and Physiology I and BIO-2341 Anatomy and Physiology II.

16 hours of documented shadowing experience with an OT Practitioner may be used in place of OTAT-1300 for admission to the program. OTAT-1300 must still be taken as a requirement of the program during the first semester if students are admitted based on shadowing hours. 


PSY-1010/101H is not required for program admission, but must be taken prior to the second semester coursework.


MATH-1100 Mathematical Explorations or MATH-1240 Contemporary Mathematics taken prior to Fall 2024 will be accepted to meet Mathematics requirements.

MATH-1140, MATH-1141, MATH-1200, MATH-1270, and MATH-1280 can no longer count towards fulfilling the college-level mathematics requirement.  These courses were re-classified as developmental mathematics by the state of Ohio in 2016.  Tri-C established a 5-year transitioning window for students who had completed these courses prior to 2016 to apply them towards meeting graduation requirements, which expired in Summer 2021. It is highly recommended to see a counselor to determine the appropriate math required for your current major.
