NOTEAny level of admission to the graduate program requires a bachelor's degree in speech-language pathology which must be completed by the date of projected enrollment.  Admission to non-degree status requires a master's degree in speech-language pathology and is granted for the sole purpose of meeting current ASHA certification standards for applicants who already have a MS degree in SLP.  If an applicant holds a bachelor's degree in another discipline, the applicant is required to complete a second bachelor's degree in speech-language pathology prior to admission to the graduate program.  Formerly referred to as the "undergraduate prerequisite program" for applicants without the SLP bachelor's degree, this program has been re-organized into a second bachelor's degree in speech-language pathology.  Application for this degree must be made through the Office of Admissions at SUBR.  See the link for this degree at further information, contact graduate program director, Dr. Elaine Bremer Lewnau at or 225-771-2570.
