Partnership with PNWU

Beginning with applications for the cohort starting in Fall 2024, Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences (PNWU) School of Occupational Therapy (SOT) has agreed to admission interviews for qualified PLU graduates for those who meet the minimum admission requirements, complete the OTCAS application, submit a resume and all official college transcripts, meet the minimum technical standards (with or without accommodation), and meet health requirements.

For the 2023-2024 application cycle, PNWU is also offering scholarships, applied toward the balance of tuition, on a first-come, first-serve basis. This same scholarship opportunity will be available for all three admission timelines. Learn more on the PNWU Master of Science in Occupational Therapy Admissions website.
