The Speech-Language Pathology Program requires a scientific knowledge base for good decision making skills. Students are required to earn at least a C in all courses in the major area, in English Composition (EN 101 and EN 300), and in all mathematics and science courses. A course may only be repeated once to improve the grade. See “Academic Program Requirements” for further information concerning General Education Curriculum and general degree requirements.
The undergraduate program in speech-language pathology is considered pre-professional: that is, a student must complete a master’s degree program and certain other requirements to be qualified for independent professional practice in any setting.
A cumulative overall grade point average of 2.5 is required for progression to 300 and 400-level classes in Speech-Language Pathology. In addition, a grade of C is required in each Speech-Language Pathology course including those at the 200-level prior to progression in the program. A course in Speech-Language Pathology may be repeated only once. If a student does not obtain a grade of C or better in a course when it is repeated, the student may not progress in the program.
The following is only one source of information regarding a student’s program of study in seeking the B.S. degree in Speech-Language Pathology. Students should always meet with a faculty advisor for information on course scheduling, rotation, and selection and for planning an effective and efficient program of study.
