Application Process



Students who have completed all pre-requisite courses, obtained 2 letters of recommendation, taken the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and written a narrative statement, may apply for admission to the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology master of science degree program through the Hunter College Graduate Admissions Office. Graduate Admissions accepts electronic applications. 

  • February 1 is the deadline for admissions each year
  • Applications will not be considered if you do not have at least 9 of the 15 communication sciences credits completed at the time of application. The remainder of pre-requisite credits must be completed prior to the Fall semester to which you are admitted. No student can be extended an offer of matriculation unless all prequisites have been completed.
  • All components and information in the application must be present and correct
  • Each year, the applicant pool sets the acceptable GRE scores and grade point averages (GPA)

Prospective students whose native language is not English and who have completed all or part of their post-secondary education in a country where English is not the native language must possess the ability to read English with ease, understand rapid idiomatic English as used in lectures and group discussions and express thoughts quickly and efficiently in spoken as well as written English. Admission is offered only to those students who are fully prepared in English as demonstrated in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The TOEFL requirement is determined by your academic background and is not affected by your US legal status (US citizenship or US permanent residency do not exempt you from the TOEFL requirement).

Admissions to the Department of Speech-Language and Audiology master of science degree program is highly competitive with each applicant pool generating its own level of qualitative standards. Applicants are advised to ensure all components of their applications are accurate and contain correctly entered information.
