Admission

The primary criteria for admission to the Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program is the applicant’s apparent ability to progress satisfactorily in the program, as determined by the admissions committee.

Prerequisites

Many applicants to the AuD program hold a Bachelor’s degree in Communicative Disorders or Speech and Hearing Sciences. These applicants have completed basic course sequences in speech and hearing sciences and in behavioral sciences along with significant work in disorders of communication.  They are eligible to apply to the AuD program. Individuals without undergraduate training in communicative disorders or speech and hearing sciences also are eligible to apply to the AuD program. For these individuals, admission to the AuD program may be granted with the provision that the required undergraduate prerequisite courses will be satisfactorily completed prior to taking graduate-level courses.

The undergraduate prerequisites can be obtained in less than one year of full-time study.

Admissions decisions are made during the spring semester for admission the following fall. Students who have been accepted for the fall term may begin graduate studies in the preceding summer, if space in the program permits. For example, admissions decisions will be made during Spring 2017 for admission to the program in Fall 2017. Students admitted for Fall 2017 may enroll in graduate study during Summer 2017, space permitting.

Graduate School rules and regulations can be found in the Graduate School Policies and Procedures: A Manual for Graduate Students and Advisors, which can be viewed on the Web at http://grad.buffalo.edu/study/progress/policylibrary.html
