This chart is provided for your convenience. It lists equivalencies between ECU courses and popular universities from which a student may apply. Please note that universities change their course offerings on a regular basis and the courses included here may or may not still be accurate. It is your responsibility to check with your institution to see which equivalent courses are available to you.
The list provided here is not exhaustive. We accept courses taken at community colleges and universities as long as they are accredited. If you cannot take a course at your institution, you may need to seek the equivalent offering at a local community college or explore other options. We accept online prerequisites for all courses but recommend taking anatomy and physiology coursework face-to-face.
All prerequisite courses must be completed with a B- or above prior to beginning the MSOT program. Four credits of anatomy and physiology are required at time of application.
* These courses must be completed within five (5) years prior to beginning the MSOT program.
