Graduate Program Expected Completion Rates 

The Department only accepts students who have completed the required undergraduate prerequisites (whether through completion of an undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) or through completion of a non-CSD undergraduate degree and post-baccalaureate leveling courses). 

Due to curriculum revisions, effective Fall 2019, the expected number of terms for program completion for full-time students is 5 semesters (2.5 years. Fall and Spring only). This is based on an average of 12 units per term (full-time).  Expected number of terms for program completion for part-time students will vary given numbers of units per term.

For students entering the program before Fall 2019, the expected number of terms for program completion for full-time students is 2.5-3 years depending on completion of one or two internships (2.5 Years = 5 semesters, (one internship); 3 Years = 6 semesters, (two internships)). This is based on an average of 9 units per term (full-time).  Expected number of terms for program completion for part-time students will vary given numbers of units per term.
