Graduate Program Admissions Basics

To be considered for admission, applications to the speech-language pathology program or speech-language pathology with teacher certification program must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution and an overall grade point average of at least 3.00 (on a 4.00 grading system) in their undergraduate major. 

All applications for admission should be submitted to the Office of Admissions by February 1.  

Students must enter the program during the fall semester.

All applications must include official transcripts from every undergraduate institution attended, as well as documentation of all CLEP and AP Credits, two letters of recommendation that evaluate the applicant’s academic abilities, the application fee, and Graduate Record Examination scores. Candidates applying from institutions outside the USA must have transcripts evaluated by World Education Services (WES). Students whose native language is not English should visit the Office of Admission website for information on the TOEFL requirement. Applicants seeking assistantships must submit two additional letters of recommendation from independent reviewers (four reviewers are required in all, if applying for an assistantship).
