B.S. in Speech Language Pathology

The Department grants the B.S. degree in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP).

The pre-professional program leads to the B.S. degree.

Each student in the Department must earn a grade of C or better in all departmental courses. This policy applies to all CSD courses. If a grade below C is received in a required course, the course must be repeated. Prerequisite courses must be passed with a C or better before subsequent courses may be taken. (For example, CSD majors must make a C or better in CSD 411 Introduction to Audiology before they can take CSD 471 Aural Rehabilitation. Other prerequisite courses are noted in the course listings.)

Admission to the Junior Class

  • The freshman class and new transfer students must be admitted into the junior class to continue to major in Communication Science and Disorders (CSD). Admission to the junior class is required for a student to continue towards a B.S. degree in CSD. The following are the requirements for admission to the junior class:

    • Complete the required 60 hours for junior status
    • Complete specified courses in Speech Language Pathology with a C or better in each course:
      • CSD 101: Survey of Communication Disorders
      • CSD 253: Applied Phonetics in Communication Disorders
      • CSD 291: Normal Language Development
    • Maintain an overall GPA of 2.5 or better
    • CSD courses are only available to students who are declared CSD majors. However, CSD 101 is available to students who may be considering declaring Speech-Language Pathology as their major and are seeking more information about the profession. CSD 385 is also open to students regardless of major to explore cultural diversity issues.
