Admission Requirements

Applicants to the program must meet the requirements for admission to the Graduate School given in Admission and Registration; however, satisfying these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Each applicant’s credentials are scrutinized by members of the faculty of the program. No single criterion, such as grade point average or Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) score, is given undue weight in the decision process; every attempt is made to assess the special strengths that the applicant might bring to the program.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional liability insurance is required of all students enrolled in off-campus clinical practicums in speech/language pathology or audiology. The insurance policy must cover the duration of the placement, beginning on or before the first day of the placement and extending through the final day of the placement.
