Applications & Admissions Overview

Applicants must decide whether to apply to a clinical degree program (only), to the Ph.D. program (only) or to the dual Ph.D./Clinical track.

Applications are submitted electronically, via the Communication Sciences and Disorders Centralized Application Service (CSDCAS) and Purdue’s online “Apply Yourself” system.

  • Applicants to clinical programs (including dual track) must submit an application via CSDCAS as well as a complete "Apply Yourself" application. 
  • Those applying ONLY to the Ph.D. program must submit only the "Apply Yourself" Ph.D. program application. 
  • Applicants to the dual Ph.D./Clinical tracks must submit both a CSDCAS and "Apply Yourself" Ph.D. program applications. 
  • Note that the "Apply Yourself" application is slightly different for Clinical (only) vs. Ph.D. and Dual Track applications.  Please see individual pages for each track.


Clinical and Dual Track: January 1st.
Ph.D. Only:  January 1st (Fall admission) and August 1st (Spring admission)
Ph.D. Only (not seeking funding): March 1st (Fall admission) and October 1st (Spring admission)

If you are thinking of applying to the Ph.D. program at Purdue, we strongly recommend that you contact prospective supervisors before starting the application process. 

Please contact the graduate secretary at the address listed on the Contact Us page with any questions that are not answered on these pages.
