NOTE: Any 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. If an applicant holds a bachelor's degree in a discipline other than speech-language pathology, the applicant is required to complete a second bachelor's degree in speech-language pathology prior to admission to the graduate program. Students who anticipate applying for admission to the graduate program following completion of the second degree in speech-language pathology must meet the same GPA requirements as all other applicants (see above). Completion of the second bachelor's degree does not guarantee admission to the graduate program. Students who are considering the second degree in speech-language pathology are advised to consult with the graduate program director prior to enrolling in courses for this degree.
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. Additional information about the department is available on the departmental website at www.subr.edu/speechpathology.
