Admission to the Graduate Program in Communication Disorders is determined by a point-based system. Points are determined by a combination of the grade point average (GPA) and the score from either the Miller's Analogies Test (MAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Students with the highest point score (70) are considered first. No letters of recommendations are required and will not be considered. Even though a student may have the required minimum points (40), this does not guarantee admission to the program. The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders does not offer probationary admission. A competitive score on the GRE is considered to be 950, and the minimum score is 750. This is a combination score of the verbal plus quantative or qualitative scores. A competitive MAT score is 400, and the minimum score is 375.
