Three-Year Leveling Track

Students who have not earned an undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders are encouraged to apply directly to the graduate program.  Upon acceptance, students will complete 28 credit hours of supporting undergraduate coursework (listed below) during the first year of study.  Students accepted into the three-year track have graduate student status and must follow the College of Graduate Studies and Research policies in order to remain in good standing.

After completion of prerequisite coursework, "levelers" will transition into their graduate course sequence for either the Master of Science track or the Master of Arts track. Please refer to the Master of Science or Master of Arts program webpages for additional information.
