Doctor of Audiology (AuD) Program

Application Process

Deadline for Fall Semester Entry: February 1, 2014 (a class of approximately 8 to 10 graduate students begins each year).

Applications with all required materials must be submitted to the Communication Sciences and Disorders Centralized Application Service (CSDCAS), and an online application to the UNC Graduate School must also be completed. Transcripts, GRE scores, and letters of recommendation need only be sent to CSDCAS.

All application materials must be received by the above deadline for admission consideration.

Initial decisions about admission to the program are typically made by mid-March. A list of alternates is also developed, and alternates may be admitted to the program up until the beginning of Fall semester.

Strong applicants will have a solid background in communication disorders as well as science. Desired science courses include biology, chemistry, and human anatomy and physiology.

Required materials:

Official Transcripts: One official transcript from each college or university you have attended (including UNC) must be sent to CSDCAS. UNC currently requires a 3.0 minimum grade point average for regular admission to a graduate program.

Graduate Record Examination (GRE): GRE Scores that are no more than five years old are required as a part of the application process. The GRE should be taken with sufficient lead-time. Scores must be submitted to CSDCAS prior to the application deadline. PLEASE NOTE: Designated Institution (DI) Code is 0033.

Letters of Recommendation: Three letters of recommendation are required, at least two of which must be from previous academic professors. Please use the online format provided by CSDCAS.

Essay: Please describe how you became interested in audiology and briefly outline your professional goals. Submit to CSDCAS.

Financial Aid:

You may apply for financial aid through the Audiology & Speech Language Sciences Program and/or the University's Financial Aid Office. University financial aid includes scholarships, student loans, work-study, and other programs. To be eligible for these university-wide programs, it is necessary for you to submit a "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA) by February 15. Financial statements submitted after March 1 will be processed but will receive a lower priority and funding will be subject to funds available. The FAFSA forms and information are available through financial aid offices and public high schools in your area and through the UNC Office of Student Financial Resources.
