We do not begin to review applications until the application deadline, and we do not have rolling admissions. Decisions about admission are made after all applications are reviewed.
Each application is reviewed in its entirety independently by at least two members of the faculty in the Department of Communications Sciences and Disorders (CSD). Recommendations are made by the Admissions Committee for the program, which includes most of the CSD faculty.
We complete the application review process by the end of February. You can expect to hear about the status of your application soon after that. Additionally, each year we host an Open House for all accepted students that occurs in late March or early April.
