Doctor of Audiology Admission Requirements

Admission to the Doctoral Degree in Audiology (AuD) program is limited and competitive. Applicants must be admitted by both the department and the Graduate School to enroll as a degree-seeking student.

The AuD Admissions Committee strongly considers academic performance and scores on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Preference is given to applicants with a 3.2 GPA or higher, both cumulatively and within the major, and scores of 500 or higher on both the verbal and quantitative GRE subtests. Other areas, such as strong performance on the analytical writing section of the GRE, strong recommendations, a well-written statement of purpose, a positive interview, a clear sense of goals and direction, and excellent interpersonal communication skills, are also critical components in the admission process.

Due to the large number of applicants, meeting the admission standards does not guarantee admission into the program.

Our AuD program is a four-year residential program, designed primarily for students entering with a bachelor's degree. However, if you already hold a master's degree in audiology, we welcome you to apply.
