Estimated Cost for Occupational Therapy Program

The Occupational Therapy Program at Seton Hall University offers two tracks leading to a Master of Science degree. A dual-degree program links students from the undergraduate division of the University to the graduate program. The senior year for dual-degree students serves as their first year of graduate education in the occupational therapy program (see cost of undergraduate education here). Therefore, the additional cost, beyond their undergraduate degree for attaining their Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) is for the last two years of the program. 

The estimated cost of the dual degree students who entered the OT program as seniors in the Fall of 2021 is as follows:

1st year - undergraduate tuition for Fall and Spring terms $22,210
Graduate tuition for 52 graduate credits with an estimated 3% annual tuition increase $79,133
University fees $2,000
Technology fees $2,670
Parking fees for 1 year on IHS campus $580
CPR: $225-$305
Books and supplies, spread over the senior and graduate years $2,000 (approx.)
Background check, $72 annually for 3 years. Raised to 74 $222

Additional fees that may accrue are loan fees, housing, and medical prerequisites for various clincial sites (vaccinations and/or drug tests). 

The traditional graduate track of the program accepts students who earned a baccalaureate degree and are admitted for their graduate education. The estimated cost of attendance in the occupational therapy program for students who began their studies as graduate students in Fall 2021 is estimated as follows:
