MS Application Requirements


Students admitted to the Communication Disorders Masters Program should have completed their undergraduate in communication disorders, speech-language pathology, or speech and hearing science. Students completing their undergraduate degree in other fields may also admitted; however, it will be necessary to complete the undergraduate major requirements as part of their graduate program.

Graduate Record Exam (GRE)

The program no longer requires applicants to take the GRE. Those who are invited to the interview stage, will be asked to complete a written prompt that will be assigned each year. 

Grade Point Average (GPA)

The average GPA for admission is 3.88 and the GPA range of admitted applicants is at 3.4 to 4.0.

Letters of Recommendation

Three letters of recommendation are required to be submitted with the graduate studies application. Letters from PhD faculty are preferred but not required.

Statement of Intent

The Statement of Intent may address how the student became familiar with speech-language pathology, why they are interested in BYU's Masters of Communication Disorders program, if they research and career interests, and extenuating circumstances, i.e., a semester of poor grades. The application will be evaluated on the applicant's academic and other areas of preparation.

We want to know you and why you are applying to BYU's Communication Disorders Master's program.
