Admissions Committee for CSD's Graduate Programs

The Graduate Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders maintains an Admissions Committee composed of graduate faculty. The Committee convenes to review recommendations and make decisions on admission during early- to mid-February.

Selection criteria are based on the applicant's overall record using four criteria:

  1. Overall cumulative grade point average and cumulative average of course work obtained within the major
  2. Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores
  3. The personal statement
  4. Letters of recommendation

Additionally, applicants are expected to maintain a grade-point average of at least 3.0 at the completion of the baccalaureate degree. Applicants accepted into the master's degree program will be notified as soon as possible. However, it is expected that the admissions committee will meet several times to review applications. It is possible that some applicants will be notified of their admission status as late as the end of April or early May.

Note: Please do not submit information with your application that cannot be used in the admission decision process, e.g., Individual Education Plans (IEPs), medical records, statements from physicians or psychologists, or legal documents. Such information will be returned.
