Students applying for admission to the Speech Pathology MA program should take note of the following policies:
- Prerequisite SPAUD courses must have been completed within the last seven years.
- Preference will be given to Calvin applicants who have completed or will complete all prerequisite courses at Calvin, unless advisor approval has been granted.
- Enrollment in the MA program is also contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check, fingerprint check, and drug screen.
It is important to note that completion of the SPAUD courses and achievement of the minimum criteria does not guarantee admission into the MA or any other graduate program. Enrollment in the MA Program is limited and thus the admission process is selective.
