Application Process

Centralized Application to the Graduate Program

Applications to the Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders will be administered through the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders Centralized Application Service for Clinical Education in Audiology and Speech Language Pathology. This web-based service for students has been created so prospective applicants may apply to multiple schools from one centralized program.

In order to apply for the master's degree program in Communication Sciences and Disorders, prospective applicants should log in at the CSDCAS portal. This link will allow you to make an application for the program and monitor your application's status. As part of this process you will need to supply the following:

  1. Official transcript(s) from each college from which you received course credit even if past course work appears on a later transcript. Please see instructions in CSDCAS for how to request transcripts and where to have them sent.
  2. Letters of recommendation - minimum of three. At least two of three recommendations should be from academic faculty members who know your work (see CSDCAS instructions).
  3. GRE scores are required for all applicants. The GRE CSDCAS code is 7579.
  4. Upload a 2 minute video answering the following questions: 1) What skills or experiences have prepared you to be a future speech-language pathologist? (2) Why are you determined to complete a graduate degree to become a speech-language pathologist?

Centralized Program Application must be completed by Jan 15. Incomplete applications will not be considered in the admissions process. Upon acceptance to the graduate program, students must apply and send official transcripts and GRE scores to the Graduate School at the Universtiy of Arkansas. Students are not required to apply to the Graduate School until they have confirmed their acceptance to the graduate program.
