MSOT Application Requirements & Instructions

Offers of admission will be announced by Friday, March 12, 2021. Applicants offered admission to our 2021 class will be required to provide a non-refundable $200 tuition deposit to reserve their space. This deposit will be required within 2 weeks of their admission offer.  Admitted students who enroll in the MSOT at SVSU will have their $200 deposit transferred towards the tuition costs of the Spring 2021 semester.
Due to the many qualified applications we received and the high caliber of our applicant pool for this year's class, we have established a waitlist. In just a few weeks we will determine whether or not we will be admitting students from the waitlist and if so, how many. If you are currently on the waitlist and a space becomes available to you, we will notify you by mid-April. Updates regarding our waitlist will be sent via email and text message.  To ensure you don't miss an update, please complete our text messaging opt-in form.
