Application deadline for Summer 2014 enrollment:  Friday, January 3, 2014

OT Program Application & Narrative (Applications for Summer 2014 accepted October 1, 2013 through January 3, 2014)

The personal narrative is your opportunity to share your experiences, perspectives, and insights.  This narrative will be evaluated for depth of thought, conciseness, and written communication style.  The first person point of view is acceptable in your response; however, keep in mind that this is not a casual paper.  High quality narratives will demonstrate flawless writing mechanics, be free of typing and grammatical errors, address all of the questions in detail, reflect depth of thought, and portray the student’s unique perspective.

In addition to the above application materials required by the OT Program, applicants must also apply for admission to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse School of Graduate Studies.  Applications to the UW-L Graduate School are available online here.

Applicants will also need to submit official transcripts for all college courses.  All transcripts (other than UW-L) should be sent to the Graduate School for inclusion with your Graduate School application.  Applicants are encouraged to request delivery of their transcripts with their respective schools in advance of the application deadline.  Failure to submit all transcripts will delay, possibly even prevent, the processing of the application.

Please direct transcripts to:

UW-L Graduate Admissions
1725 State St
142 Cleary
La Crosse, WI 54601

Current and former UW-L students do not need to forward UW-L transcripts with their application.  UW-L will automatically pull the applicant's transcript when the Graduate School application is received.
