When applicants are considered eligible for interviews after review of their completed files, they will be notified of available interview dates and invited by the Office of Admissions to schedule an interview. A typical interview day involves participation in the following activities coordinated by the Office of Admissions: an interview with two program faculty, a campus tour, and consultation with a counselor from the Office of Admissions. Virtual and in-person interview dates will be offered.
During interview sessions, program faculty will engage students in conversation regarding topics relevant to educational or healthcare settings. Students will also be asked to provide a writing sample in response to a clinical prompt. Interview and writing sample responses will be evaluated using rubrics established for this purpose. Prospective students' applications, interviews, and writing samples are evaluated using rubrics that were developed by the SLP Program. The Speech-Language Pathology Admissions Committee makes admission recommendations to the Program Director. The Dean, via the Office of Admissions, notifies each applicant in writing of the admission action/decision.
