What about Admission of Person with an arrest and/or criminal conviction

No individual may be admitted to the Associate in Applied Science (Physical Therapist Assistant) program who has not or will not complete any parole and/or probationary requirements prior to the applications deadline.

Individuals who have been arrested and/or convicted of a felony offense, a drug or alcohol related offense, or certain offenses involving moral turpitude (i.e., larceny) prior to admission to the PTA program are considered on an individual basis by the Admissions Committee. In these deliberations, the Committee considers the following factors:
1. The nature of the crime(s);
2. Evidence of rehabilitation;
3. Personal characteristics;
4. Behavior/action since the offense was committed;
5. The total criminal records; and
6. The disciplinary action of the court.

Individuals with an arrest and/or criminal conviction are advised that the Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision will consider their application for licensure by examination on an individual basis. This may require a personal appearance before the Board in the final semester of the program. It is a prerogative of the Board to grant or deny the application.
