Admission Process

Undergraduate Admission/Retention

Students qualifying for admission to the university are admissible to the undergraduate program in communication sciences and disorders. Retention requires majors to earn at least a grade of C in all program courses taken. Courses may be repeated, if necessary, to meet this requirement. Students with less than a 3.0 grade point average in speech-language pathology courses will enroll in clinical practicum if recommended by faculty. Failure to pass the practicum course will result in non-recommendation for graduate study in speech-language pathology study. Admission to the master’s program in speech-language pathology at The University of Tulsa is not guaranteed to undergraduate majors.

Graduate Admission

Prospective graduate students apply for admission through the Graduate School. Entering classes generally have 15-20 students. Financial aid, scholarships and graduate assistantships may be available to qualified students. For further information, contact the graduate school at the following email address:

Specific admission requirements to the master’s program in speech-language pathology include the following:

  • A baccalaureate from an accredited university
  • An undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0
  • An undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.5 in communication disorders courses
  • An official copy of scores from the GRE General test submitted to the Graduate School
  • Three letters of recommendation (at least two academic references)
  • Personal statement (part of the application for the Graduate School*)

Students who do not meet these minimum requirements may be considered for provisional or probationary admissions at the discretion of the graduate program adviser and faculty of the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

Students lacking a bachelor’s degree in speech-language pathology must complete undergraduate leveling courses in the discipline before being considered for admission to the graduate program. Contact for information about leveling courses.
