Probationary Admission Option: This option applies only to applicants who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00, and who have attempted all three parts of Praxis I, and passed two parts, by the close of the semester of application. Applicants who have been exempted from the Reading and Writing parts of Praxis I by SAT or ACT score must have attempted the Math part by the close of the semester of application in order to qualify for this option. Admission is competitive. Meeting these requirements does not guarantee an offer of probationary admission. Students who accept, probationary admission must pass the Math part of Praxis I by the close of the first semester of admission. Students who accept probationary admission, and who do not pass the Math part of Praxis I by the close of the first semester of admission, will be credited with a minor in Communication Disorders, based on the courses successfully completed in the Department Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD). Notes: CSD courses numbered above CD 2260 may not be taken until a student is admitted to the undergraduate program in communication disorders. Formal application for admission is required. Applications for admission are reviewed twice yearly (after October 1 for spring entry; after February 1 for summer or fall entry). Applications will be accepted in the summer if places are available for the following fall semester. The closing date for summer applications is June 10. An interview will not be required during the summer if the applicant has previously interviewed with the CSD undergraduate admissions committee. Admission is competitive. A total of 45 persons will be admitted per year (22-23 per semester). Thus, meeting the minimum requirements for admission does not mean that a student will be offered admission. For students who are not currently enrolled at ASU, admission to the Department of CSD is contingent on admission to the university. Applicants will be ranked on the basis of a formula score composed of two (2) or three (3) equally-weighted factors: o GPA for most recent 30 semester hours of undergraduate courses (last 30 hours of the first bachelor s for persons with one degree already completed); o GPA for the combination of ENG 1000, ENG 2001, CD 2259, CD 2260, and at least four (4) semester hours of the General Education Science Inquiry Perspective; o Rating of interview performance (if required) Admission decisions will be made as soon as possible after final grades are posted each semester. Students will be notified by letter of their admission status (admitted/not
23 admitted) as soon as the decisions are made. These letters will go to the students permanent mailing addresses. Students will be assisted with schedule adjustments that are necessary because of their admission status. If a student does not enroll by the next full semester (fall or spring) following admission to the undergraduate program, the admission expires. A student may apply for admission up to three times. After each of the first two unsuccessful tries, the student is to talk with her/his advisor about whether to apply again. If the student decides not to reapply after this discussion, the advisor is to assist the student in selecting another major. After the third unsuccessful try, the student must change majors, and the advisor is to assist the student with this process. Please Note: If you are not currently enrolled at Appalachian State University, the CSD undergraduate admissions committee does not have access to records needed for the application review. It is the applicant s responsibility to provide the necessary records. The following must be provided: Transcripts from all institutions of higher education (beyond high school) must be sent to the committee within 30 days after the application deadline so that it can be determined whether the student is eligible to apply. Official transcripts are not necessary. Grades for the semester of application must be provided by the decision date at the end of the semester. Praxis I scores (and/or SAT or ACT scores) must be received by the decision date at the end of the semester of application. The student is responsible for sending official notification of passing Praxis I scores (and/or SAT or ACT scores) to the committee. If the applicant chooses not to complete the speech screening at Appalachian's Communication Disorders Clinic, the applicant must provide official notification of the results of a speech/language/hearing screening performed by a certified, licensed speechlanguage pathologist.
24 Science Requirement American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Standards for the Certificates of Clinical Competence (CCC) Standard III-A: The applicant must demonstrate knowledge of the principles of biological sciences, physical sciences, mathematics, and the social/behavioral sciences. The applicant must have transcript credit (which could include course work, advanced placement, College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), or examination of equivalency) for each of the following areas: biological sciences, physical sciences, social/behavioral sciences, and mathematics. Appropriate course work may include courses such as human anatomy and physiology, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, genetics, physics, inorganic and organic chemistry, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and non-remedial mathematics. The intent of this standard is to require students to have a broad liberal arts and science background. Courses in biological and physical sciences specifically related to communication sciences and disorders may not be applied for certification purposes in this category. In addition to transcript credit, applicants may be required by their graduate program to provide further evidence of meeting this requirement. (NOTE: Course work in biological and physical sciences related to communication sciences and disorders included under another standard one addressing basic human communication processes.) What This Means for Undergraduate Students in Appalachian s Communication Disorders Undergraduate Degree Program Appalachian s general education core requirements continue to allow CSD students to meet the ASHA CCC standards in the areas of in mathematics and the social and behavioral sciences. Because the standard in science for the ASHA CCC requires transcript credit in both biological and physical science, completing Appalachian s general education Science Inquiry requirement in one specific science area (Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Geology, or Physics) will not meet this requirement. Students who complete the Science Inquiry requirement will need to take obtain additional science credit in the missing area (biological or physical science). There are presently three themes in Science Inquiry that will allow CSD students to meet the ASHA science requirement during their undergraduate studies, without needing additional credit: Contemporary Science; Global Environmental Change; and Life, Earth, and Evolution.
25 Current and prospective CSD majors at Appalachian should be guided by the following information when deciding how to meet the science requirements for the American Speech- Hearing-Language (ASHA) Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC): ASHA does not require any specific number of credit hours in either science area. The position of the Department of CSD is that students should select the least restrictive (credit hours, cost, etc.) course of action for their own personal situations. As little as one semester hour of credit in biological or physical science (whichever is needed) is sufficient. Independent study is acceptable. Auditing a course is not acceptable. When completing one of the current Science Inquiry themes is not possible, students may choose from among options that include, but are not limited to, the following: o Use some of the elective hours in your course of study to obtain credit in the area needed (biological or physical science). This may be done either at Appalachian or by transfer credit from another college/university. o Take a course at another college/university and do not include it in your course of study at Appalachian. If you choose this option, it is your responsibility to see that your graduate program has a copy of the transcript for that credit. o Take a test (e.g., advanced placement, CLEP, departmental credit by examination or test). If this option is chosen, test results must be recorded on a transcript (from Appalachian or another college/university), and your graduate program needs a copy of the transcript. Transfer students completion of both the General Education Science Inquiry requirement and the ASHA CCC science requirement will be contingent on a transcript evaluation by Appalachian for transferred science credit hours. Students should consult their University College Advisor and their advisor in the Department of CSD when making decisions about these requirements.
26 Graduate Admissions Admission Process and Requirements Admission to the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders is on a competitive basis. Students who wish to be admitted to this program must apply to the Cratis D. Williams Graduate School. A complete application includes: Application Form Three letters of recommendation (preferably from faculty members) Transcripts of all undergraduate coursework Scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Letter of intent The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders conducts admission reviews twice each year: Fall admission (application deadline February 15) Spring admission (application deadline October 1) Thirty-four new students are admitted each year for Fall entry. Twenty-two spaces in the Fall are reserved for in-field students with sufficient coursework in speech-language pathology, and twelve spaces are reserved for out-of-field students with degrees in areas other than speech-language pathology. A smaller number of spaces (usually 10 to 12) are reserved for in-field students each year for Spring entry. Basic Criteria for Consideration: Applicants must complete the necessary application process as required by the Graduate School and the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. All application materials must be received by the Graduate School no later than midnight on either October 1 or February 1. A completed application includes the following: Completed application form Resume Letter of intent Three letters of recommendation Official copies of all transcripts Official report of GRE scores Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit all materials electronically. It is the applicant s responsibility to verify with the Graduate School ( ) that all application materials have been received by the application deadline. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
27 Other Criteria for All Applicants: For students to be considered for admission, undergraduate and post baccalaureate transcripts should be included in the application. Students must present scores from the GRE, but no minimum score is required. In general, successful applicants have a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 and a minimum GRE score (verbal + quantitative) of 900. A one-page letter of intent must be included with the application. In the letter, students must comment on (1) their undergraduate course of study and performance, (2) their goals and aspirations for graduate study in the communication disorders program, and (3) if applicable, their post baccalaureate study and performance. Note that admission is on a competitive basis. Therefore, not all students who meet these minimum requirements will be offered admission. Admission Status: Students will be notified at the time of admission if prerequisite coursework is needed. In-Field: The Master's program typically requires five semesters to complete for students with bachelor's degrees in speech-language pathology. Applicants who have bachelor's degrees in other fields, and who also have at least 21 semester hours of the required prerequisite coursework in speech-language pathology are considered to be in-field (as though they have bachelor's degrees in the field). In-field students normally complete the degree in the typical five semester time frame. Pre-Field: Applicants with bachelor's degrees in other fields, and who also have 15 to 20 semester hours of the required prerequisite coursework in speech-language pathology and audiology are considered to be pre-field. They may be offered admission as an in-field student with the condition that they complete the prerequisite undergraduate courses in speech-language pathology concurrent with or prior to their first semester of graduate study. Out-of-Field: Applicants who have bachelor's degrees in other fields, and who have fewer than 15 semester hours of the required prerequisite coursework in speech-language pathology and audiology, are considered out-of-field. If admitted they will be required to complete an additional one to two semesters in order to fulfill the prerequisite undergraduate courses in speech-language pathology before enrolling in graduate level coursework. Campus Visits. If you have additional questions about the graduate program, please contact us. Individual interviews are not granted due to the large numbers of applications to the program. Therefore, four dates are scheduled to meet with faculty and tour our clinical facilities. For the Fall 2011 semester, the following dates have been reserved: September 9, October 7, November 4, and December 9 from 1:00 to 3:00. Prospective students will have the opportunity to ask questions and talk with current graduate students. We require reservations. Please contact Ms. Eveline Watts at or her at: to arrange a visit. If you are interested in a quality program that offers you the opportunity to work with an exceptional faculty and outstanding students from all regions of the United States, please consider submitting an application. Learn more about assistantships and scholarships available to graduate students.

The clinical practicum coursework and internship will provide the 400 hours of supervised clinical experiences required for the American Speech-Language- Hearing Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC). Typically, all students enrolled in CD 5564 Practicum I will be assigned to on-campus sites and will be supervised by Appalachian faculty. Subsequent practicum assignments will involve travel to off-campus sites and will ensure a diverse clinical experience. Whenever possible, student requests for specific practicum sites will be considered. The capstone practicum experience of the graduate program is the internship completed during the final semester. More detailed information about clinical practicum is available from the Clinic Manual.
30 Internship: Capstone Clinical Experience The last semester of study in the program involves a full-time internship. Students may choose a "split internship" which involves completing 6 to 8 weeks of internship in a school and the remaining 6 to 8 weeks of the internship in a clinical setting. The program has internship agreements with many facilities throughout North Carolina as well as in neighboring states. For example, students have been placed at the Asheville and Fayetteville Veteran Administration Hospitals, Charlotte Rehabilitation Hospital, Frye Regional Medical Center, the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, Johnson City Medical Center, Siskin Hospital for Rehabilitation, John Hopkins Medical Center, and Walter Reed Army Medical Center. For a more thorough listing of the internship sites available, please browse the Internship Database.
