If you have a felony conviction on your record, this may affect your ability to sit for the certification examination administered by NBCOT after you graduate; this can subsequently affect your ability to attain state licensure. Before applying to the OTA program, you can contact NBCOT for information on their early determination program to assess examination eligibility. Go to www.nbcot.org and read the Early Review section for further details.
