In order for students to meet 2005 ASHA certification standards (see http://www.asha.org/Certification/slp_standards/), La Salle University's Speech-Language-Hearing Science Program includes prerequisites to graduate study. The Chair of the Admissions Committee evaluates graduate applications to determine whether the applicant has met all prerequisites. Students who have not met these requirements (equivalent course title and description) are required to meet them prior to applying to the MS program. In certain situations, students may complete some necessary prerequisites simultaneously with graduate study. Students must fulfill prerequisite requirements prior to obtaining the master's degree.
The Admissions Committee considers each applicant's accomplishments, experiences and personal qualities as reflected in his/her personal statement and letters of recommendation. Special consideration may be made on the basis of having successfully completed substantial graduate coursework in a related discipline, or noteworthy contributions to the field. A personal interview may be required. We invite applications from all students with a strong commitment to excellence in caring for those with communication disorders.
