The traditional graduate SLP program admits for fall semester only.
Please carefully read and follow the instructions below for application to our program.
1. Undergraduate Degree: Applicants to the program must possess a bachelor's degree in speech-language pathology or complete a post-baccalaureate sequence of courses from an accredited university. Applicants must be able to submit transcripts from at least one semester of post-baccalaureate courses at the time of their application. It is acceptable for students to apply if they are taking post-bacc courses during the fall semester – however, applicants must be certain that an updated transcript is sent once grades have posted at the end of the semester.
2. GRE: The GRE is required. We will accept either the old (prior to 8/1/11) or the revised (8/1/11 and after) test scores. GRE scores are valid for 5 years. Official scores should be sent directly to the University of Akron (code 1829).
3. Application System: This year, we are requiring BOTH the application to the University of Akron AND application through CSDCAS.
