We have no set thresholds for GRE or GPA scores. For applicants who take the GRE more than once, we consider the highest set of scores.

Our AuD program assumes that students have basic coursework in the biological, physical, mathematical, and social/behavioral sciences by the time of graduation. These courses should be completed at the undergraduate level and reflect preparation for graduate study in audiology. In the CSDCAS portal, this coursework is listed as "prerequisites" so that we can track what undergraduate coursework you have, but these courses are not required for admission. You are encouraged to complete this coursework prior to your first semester of graduate school, but they don't have to be completed until you graduate.
