Submit three letters of recommendation. If you have volunteer experience in an orthotics and prosthetics facility, at least one of the letters must be from this source.
Submit a 1,200-1,500 word essay explaining why you want to become an orthotist-prosthetist and why you wish to attend Eastern Michigan University.
Deadline for Submission The completed application, transcripts and all other requirements must be completed and necessary paperwork received by the Office of Graduate Admissions no later than the first Friday of May of each year.
Notification of Admission
Candidates will be notified of either acceptance or non-acceptance no later than the last Friday in May each year.
Non-accepted candidates who met the minimum admission standards will be ranked and may be contacted and offered admission if any of the initially admitted applicants decline acceptance.
Course work Didactic course work is held mostly on weekday afternoons and evenings. Clinical affiliations are offered during Spring and Summer semesters. This arrangement is ideal for the individual who needs to work part-time while attending the program. Attempting to work full-time is extremely difficult and is discouraged.
