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 www.subr.edu/speechpathologyFor further information, contact graduate program director, Dr. Elaine Bremer Lewnau at Elaine_Lewnau@subr.edu or 225-771-2570.
