Post-baccalaureate Program

The Post-Baccalaureate program is designed for students who have completed an undergraduate degree that is not in speech language pathology, communicative disorders, or speech & hearing sciences and are interested in completing the prerequisites necessary to apply for a Master’s degree program in Communicative Disorders.  Successful completion of Post-baccalaureate coursework in the area of Communicative Disorders DOES NOT guarantee admission into a graduate program.

Post-Baccalaureate students must have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale, or an earned Master’s Degree or Higher Degree from an accredited University to be admitted into the Post-Baccalaureate Program. 

The Post-Baccalaureate program curriculum is designed to be completed in two (2) consecutive semesters, beginning in the fall and culminating in the spring.  The curriculum is a sequenced curriculum, which means that the schedule of classes offered during the fall Semester are prerequisite classes for the classes offered during the spring Semester. All of the classes that are listed in the fall are required to be taken and passed with a letter grade of “C” or higher before the student can enroll in the spring semester classes that are listed.
