Graduate Program Admissions

Admission Criteria

Prospective graduate students need to recognize that admission to our graduate program is very selective. We accept a limited number of students each year. While the minimum admission requirement is a 3.0 GPA out of a possible 4.0, the average GPA of students selected for our program is 3.8. Currently, there is no GRE requirement. Our admission decisions are based on a composite of information about the applicant, not merely one factor. The composite includes but is not limited to: grades, personal achievements/involvement during school or since graduation, service activities, potential to contribute to the cultural diversity of our program, leadership, motivation, time management skills, and letters of recommendation. Our application through CSDCAS will require responses to two written and two video prompts.  

Application Process

Applications can be completed and submitted through the CSDCAS portal.

(Please note: Application materials received after the posted deadline will not be considered in admission review.)

For questions about Admissions, please contact Mikailyn Huffman 


If offered admittance and choose to accept, students will be required to respond to the CSD Department with a signed acceptance letter and submit an additional application to The Graduate School through Apply Yourself at a cost of $125.00.

To hold your position, a CSD Tuition Deposit is required.

State Licensure

Generally, states require persons working in any capacity in speech-language pathology or related professions to be licensed, certified or registered in the state. Students interested in working in another state should review the state licensure map to learn whether the CSD program will lead to licensure, certification, registration, etc. in each state.
