OTD program to launch in May 2023

We recently announced the first doctorate program in our 116-year history will begin at Cox College this May. The Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) program is a nine-semester, hybrid program that will feature hands-on, skill-based practice, and online coursework. Included in the program are 24 weeks of level 2 fieldwork with direct supervision from an occupational therapist. We are so excited to see how these students will shape the future of health care.

We are taking applications for our inaugural class now! Learn more here.

Faculty member earns EdD

Dr. Stacy Bohn, BSN Chair at Cox College, recently completed her Doctor of Education degree (EdD) at Grand Canyon University! Well done, Dr. Bohn!


Scholarship application deadline

There is nothing we love more than helping our students afford their education, and scholarships are one of the primary ways we can assist. Last year, Cox College awarded over $365,000 to our students!

The scholarship application deadline is April 15. View our available scholarships and submit your application here!


Commencement and Pinning Ceremony

We can’t believe it’s already time to start talking about these end-of-semester activities, but May will be here before you know it!

Pinning Ceremony will take place at Evangel University’s Spence Chapel on May 11 at 6:30pm. Students need to arrive at 5:45 for check-in.

Commencement will be held at Drury University’s O’Reilly Family Event Center on May 12 at 10 am.

Family and friends are welcome and encouraged to attend either of these awesome events! We truly love celebrating with our students during this time of year as they make the transition from student to health care professional.
