Application Process

Applications are considered on a rolling basis for acceptance into the professional program. Individual applications are reviewed once materials have been received; therefore, it is in the applicant's best interest to complete their application, including submission of required documentation, as early as possible. Fulfillment of the basic requirements does not guarantee admission.

Applicants who meet the above listed requirements and are deemed competitive candidates for admission will be invited to TTUHSC for an interview. The admissions committee selects the most qualified applicants for admission by considering the following: major GPA, cumulative GPA, GRE scores, interview scores, and other factors.

Interviews

Admission interviews are granted by the SLP admissions committee by invitation only. Applicants are selected for interviews based on a holistic evaluation of their application and supporting documents.
