Progression Through the Program
- SLP graduate students must maintain a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA.
- SLP graduate students may not earn more than two grades below “B” in COSD courses. Note that a “B-” does not satisfy this requirement.
- If a student receives a “C” in a clinical practicum course, he/she must retake the course and receive a “B” or better. Students who receive below a “B” on retaking the course are subject to dismissal from the program.
- A grade of “F” in any clinical practicum course (COSD 516, COSD 616, including the student teaching course (COSD 521), is grounds for immediate dismissal from the program.
- SLP graduate students are expected to abide by the ASHA Code of Ethics. The CSD faculty will determine the degree to which a student fulfills these criteria.
- Decisions of the CSD faculty are final but subject to appeal. Refer to the La Salle University Graduate Catalog and Student Guide to Rights and Responsibilities.
