    Admission Information

    Students Who Do Not Have a Speech and Hearing Science Undergraduate degree

    Non-matriculated students are those graduate students that have been provisionally admitted with a Bachelors' Degree in something other than Communication Sciences and Disorders. Although an undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Science is not a prerequisite for admission into our graduate program, it is a preparatory program for the AuD degree. Thus, those who enter our AuD program from other professions are required to complete a series of prerequisite undergraduate classes.

    NOTE: The CSD prerequisite requirements are mandated by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

    For more information, please email Dr. Sarah Hargus-Ferguson, Director of Graduate Studies, Audiology.




    If English is not your native language, please arrange to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) so that the scores are received by January 15th for Fall semester. The University's requirements for the TOEFL is a minimum score of 80 on the internet-based test. The requirement for the IELTS is a score of 6.5. We will weigh the entire application to determine the ability of the student to complete the program successfully.


    The University of Utah Speech-Language Pathology, PhD program and the Audiology Program participate in the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP), which is coordinated by the Western Interstate Commission of Higher Education (WICHE).

    Residents of Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming who are admitted to either the PhD program or the Audiology program are eligible to enroll at resident tuition rates.
