Concordia University, St. Paul’s Master of Science (MS) in Orthotics and Prosthetics provides an educational preparation for orthotists and prosthetists in the evaluation, fabrication, and custom fitting of artificial limbs and orthopedic braces. Students are trained on the assessment, treatment plan development, implementation, follow-up, and practice management of orthotic and prosthetic care.
The Concordia University, St. Paul and Century College Partnership
The MS in Orthotics and Prosthetics is offered through a unique collaborative partnership between Concordia University, St. Paul and Century College. CSP and Century College representatives work closely to ensure a high-quality student experience that meets the educational needs of the orthotics and prosthetics industry.
The application deadline is August 1 with FALL ONLY starts each year. The 22-month program (5 ½ semesters) consists of 36 credit hours offered primarily online with three, one-week intensives held on the Century College campus.
Although CSP’s program is 22 months, the timeline to complete the entire O & P curriculum between Concordia and Century is longer unless a student completes the BS-Orthotics and Prosthetics degree from Concordia.
Please view these flow charts for more information regarding the Concordia-Century partnership and associated timelines.
Upon conferral of the MSOP degree, students will need to complete an NCOPE approved residency. Students can visit the National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education (NCOPE) website for more information regarding residency eligibility and requirements.

*One student from the second cohort was able to graduate early and begin their residency. (9/9 in cohort 1; a tenth student was added to NCOPE’s tracking data because of the timing of their residency)
**One student from this cohort was able to graduate early and was counted in the previous year. This number would technically mean 11/14 graduates secured a residency within 6 months. 2 students secured residency > 6 months. Total: 13/14 graduates secured residencies.
