Admission is granted one time per year. Full-time students will be accepted for summer admission and will begin a strict sequence of study in the summer. The admission deadline for the Summer cohort is February 1 each year. Applications must be verified by CSDCAS and received by Monmouth University by February 1 each year; verification typically takes one month.

Students with a bachelor’s degree in a discipline other than Speech-Language Pathology/Communication Sciences and Disorders may apply for admission after completing up to 18 credits of prerequisite course work.
