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. 

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 (click here to download and use a Worksheet for Pre-requisite Coursework)
  • GRE scores continue to be required for February 1, 2023 applications
  • at least two letters of recommendation
  • narrative statement - why are you a good fit to be a student at Hunter College? What skills, experiences and insights do you possess that will make you successful in both graduate school and your forthcoming career as a speech-language pathologist? What unique experiences and what contributions do you think you can successfully make to the field of speech-language pathology?

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 before April 15. Per nationwide agreement with the Council on Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD), accepted candidates are not required to make a decision regarding an acceptance offer until April 15 prior to September matriculation.


It is anticipated that the following 12 credits will not be required for Fall 2023 matriculation. 

3 credits: Arts

3 credits: US History/Political Science

3 credits: English Literature

3 credits: non-English language 

When filling out the admissions worksheet, please leave these courses blank. (Please note, the other 3 credits of English writing remain an ASHA requirement and must be entered on the admissions worksheet.)

Individuals with a master's degree in other fields must still fulfill all application and degree/curriculum requirements.
