BS Application Requirements

The Communication Disorders (ComD) major is a limited enrollment program and 100 students are admitted to the major each year. Students interested in majoring in ComD should declare Pre-ComD as a major and will need to apply for admission to the ComD major after completing the prerequisite requirements.


At the McKay School we are guided by three important goals: (1) strengthen children and youth; (2) prepare noble educators; (3) share the benefits of our learning with educators and families worldwide.

We need your help. Any donation, small or large, benefits our students and faculty in this important work.

We are striving to be the best for the world-not to be prideful, but to better serve and strengthen children.

– Dean Mary Anne Prater
