Program Admission


In addition to the university requirements for admission to the Graduate School, applicants for admission to the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology degree program must meet at least two of the following criteria:

  1. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.5; or
  2. A minimum combined score of 800 on the GRE General Test (Verbal plus Quantitative); or
  3. A combined score of 1875, determined by multiplying the total undergraduate grade-point average by the combined GRE General Test Scores (Verbal plus Quantitative).

GRE verbal and quantitative scores cannot be older than two years from the date you wish to apply. The best combined verbal and quantitative score within that two-year period will be used as part of your final application assessment.

Admission is selective and competitive. Applicants who fail to meet the above standards may be admitted on conditional status as recommended by the Graduate Admission and Retention Committee of the Department of Speech-Language Pathology in concert with the Dean of the Graduate School.
