CSD welcomes all applicants for their graduate program, whether they have an undergraduate degree in CSD or another field. The graduate program audits the transcripts of applicants to determine if leveling coursework is required. Students who have not completed an undergraduate degree in CSD or whom do not meet leveling requirements will be required to complete 24 hours of leveling coursework and clinical observations before they will be eligible for admission to the M.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders program. Leveling students must reapply for admission to the M.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders program.
Applications are welcome from individuals who have leveled at other universities. Applicants who have leveled at other universities are encouraged to contact the graduate advisor at ACU to determine applicability of their leveling coursework.
