Founded in 1903, NDSCS is one of the oldest two-year, comprehensive, residential colleges in the nation. NDSCS offers degrees, certificates, and diplomas in over 80 academic options in traditional career and technical studies as well as the liberal arts, including occupational therapy. While tuition is general around $4,000 for in-state students, the occupational therapy program may require up to $800 more in fees, materials, and other expenses. Unlike other schools, NDSCS offers future occupational therapy assistants the option to earn a dual degree in mental health care. The curriculum consists of three semesters of academic preparation and one semester of full-time fieldwork education, and all students are expected to be CPR certified and will need to submit to a complete background check.
