Prospective Students

The Department of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology designed this website to answer all questions a prospective student may have. Careful review of information posted on these pages will answer all prospective students' questions.

Students matriculated in the Speech-Language Pathology curriculum are enrolled in a full time "locked" sequence of courses only. This means that part time studies are not permitted and that the same courses are not offered every semester. The curriculum is offered in a progression of courses and students can only enroll in the order in which courses are given. Full time enrollment requires up to 6 semesters of studies:

Year 1 - summer pre-enrollment of 3 credit course required for the New York State Teachers of Students with Speech-Language Disabilities (TSSLD), followed by fall, spring and summer
Year 2 - fall and spring enrollment. Students may take one extra semester of clinical practicum as well as complete the TSSLD required course if missed during year 1.

A student who falls out of the lockstep sequence will need to enroll for more semesters in order to catch up to the curriculum.
