GPA & GRE Scores of Students Accepted

The Speech-Language Pathology program begins in the fall and takes five consecutive semesters, which includes the summer between two academic years.

A student completes three semesters of on-campus clinic, and two semesters of off-campus clinical practicums.

The program is designed to have front-end loaded academics and back-end loaded clinic. This ensures that most academic courses are completed early in the program while completing a light clinical experience. An increasing clinical experience load occurs later in the program with a corresponding light academic course load.

The program is full time and offered on campus.
