Matriculating into the Speech-Language Pathology degree program
Acceptance as a matriculated student into the Speech-Language Pathology degree program is determined by the department's Admissions Committee. An increased number of applications each year generates a highly competitive admissions process. Each applicant's credentials are collectively weighed in a competitive pool of applications. The ratio of applicants to seated matriculated students ran at 6.1% for the incoming 2016 cohort.
Hunter College maintains only electronic processes for Graduate Admissions. Applicants are responsible for creating an admissions account and correctly submitting the following:
- official transcripts from undergraduate and graduate schools verifying completion of degrees, GPAs and coursework
- GRE scores
- two letters of recommendation
- narrative statement
Visit Hunter College's Graduate Admissions page for more information regarding the application process.
Speech-Language Pathology degree students are admitted for the fall semester only. February 1 is the annual application deadline and applicants are generally informed of decisions by April 15.
Individuals with a master's degree in other fields must still fulfill all application and degree/curriculum requirements.
