Application Process and Deadlines
Speech-Language Pathology Program
To be considered for admission to the Speech-Language Pathology Program, applicants must submit the following to the Office of Admissions:
- CSDCAS Application
Applicants are required to submit their applications to CSDCAS at http://www.capcsd.org/csdcas by February 1, 2017. Please refer to the CSDCAS application instructions for specific details about completing the application, required documents, and processing time. Due to the large number of applications and the limited number of seats available, applicants are encouraged to complete their CSDCAS application early in the cycle. An advantage of a centralized application service is that students can monitor the status of their applications online.
- Letters of Recommendation
Applicants are required to submit a minimum of two letters of recommendation to CSDCAS (http://www.capcsd.org/csdcas). The Office of Admissions will accept only letters of recommendation received via CSDCAS. Letters should be contributed from professors, speech-language pathologists, or other professionals with whom the applicant has interacted. They should address academic, clinical and professional qualities that will contribute to the applicant's readiness for graduate study. Please refer to the CSDCAS application instructions for specific guidelines and requirements for submitting letters of recommendation.
- GRE Scores
Applicants are required to submit official GRE general test and writing scores directly to Midwestern University. The MWU institutional code for submitting scores is 1769. Only scores earned during the previous five years (no earlier than January 1, 2012) and sent directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS) will be accepted.
- Completed Applications
The Office of Admissions will send letters verifying receipt of completed CSDCAS applications to applicants who meet the minimum cumulative GPA requirement of 3.00. The letters will include instructions for checking the status of the required application materials online. Applicants are responsible for tracking the receipt of their application materials and ensuring the submission of all required documents. Only applicants who submit complete application packages will be considered for potential entrance into the Program.
Please note: Applicants are responsible for notifying the Office of Admissions of any changes in their mailing address or email address. All application withdrawal requests must be made in writing via e-mail, fax, or letter to:
