The Bachelor of Science in Orthotics & Prosthetics degree is a unique partnership between Century College and Concordia University, St. Paul.
In order to be eligible for a BSOP degree from Concordia University, students must complete the following coursework:
- Clinical Applications Diploma from Century College
note: the Clinical Applications Diploma coursework is included in the right column of Century College’s Program Guide
note: Students might need to start with the Orthotic and Prosthetic Fitter Associated in Applied Science degree (the left column of Century College’s Program Guide) depending on their previous experience/coursework in the O&P field. Please contact Century College for further information about these programs.
- Concordia University’s Biology and Kinesiology coursework.
Note: Students must take Anatomy & Physiology I and II at Concordia, not Century.
- Concordia University’s General Education requirements must be completed. Students often can transfer in all general education coursework from Century College with the exception of Theology coursework.
Completion of the Bachelor of Science in Orthotics and Prosthetics coursework at Concordia University-St. Paul (i.e., the BIO and KHS coursework) does not mean you will earn the BSOP degree since Century College coursework is required to complete the full major. If students do not complete the Century College coursework, which is part of the major, they will not be able to earn the BSOP degree from Concordia.
The Bachelor of Science in Orthotics and Prosthetics degree provides the educational preparation to become an Orthotics and Prosthetics Assistant; however, it is not accredited as an assistant-level program. Students graduating with this degree can become ABC-certified Orthotics and Prosthetics Assistants but not solely through the completion of this degree. Please review the specific requirements to become an ABC-certified Orthotics and Prosthetics Assistant by visiting the ABC website.
Note: Concordia University, St. Paul does not provide any counseling or guidance to Century College representatives regarding Century College’s acceptance procedures into their Orthotics and Prosthetics programs.
