The Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree requires a four-year post-baccalaureate program of study that includes 99 credit hours partitioned across both academic and clinical practicum courses. In addition, students must meet all the requirements specified by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology. Additional coursework may be required depending on your academic and/or clinical background to fulfill all program requirements.

We have no set thresholds for GRE or GPA scores. For applicants who take the GRE more than once, we consider the highest set of scores. The average GRE scores for students most recently accepted in the program were 305 (verbal: 152, quantitative: 151; writing 4.0) and the average GPA score (all four years of the undergraduate degree) was 3.83 (4 point scale).

We encourage students with backgrounds other than Communication Disorders to apply. Electives are available during the program which will allow you to make up required undergraduate courses in Communication Sciences and Disorders including 3 semester hours each of language development and language disorders.

Our AuD program assumes that students have basic coursework in the biological, physical, mathematical, and social/behavioral sciences by the time of graduation. These courses should be completed at the undergraduate level and reflect preparation for graduate study in audiology. In the CSDCAS portal, this coursework is listed as "prerequisites" so that we can track what undergraduate coursework you have, but these courses are not required for admission. You are encouraged to complete this coursework prior to your first semester of graduate school, but they don't have to be completed until you graduate.

For admission to the Fall 2018 Doctor of Audiology (AUD) degree program the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, students are required to submit an application to the CSD centralized application service.
