Undergraduate Course Requirements

Undergraduate Courses

To meet the undergraduate course requirements, you must have earned a grade of C or better in the course areas below. If you haven't met all of the undergraduate requirements, we may admit you with the understanding that you will complete the missing required courses during the AuD program. In most cases, these undergraduate deficiency courses can be blended into the AuD program without extending the length of the program.

Credits earned to meet these undergraduate requirements do not count towards the credits required for completion of the AuD program.

This list is provided to prospective students to help them determine which courses, if any, may be deficient. An admitted student's transcripts will be evaluated by the AuD Program Director after the student has been admitted into the AuD program.
