Applications for Clinical Degrees Only
Applications for admission to our Clinical programs (Au.D., MS-SLP) require materials to be sent both via CSDCAS and via Purdue’s online systems.
Materials to be submitted to CSDCAS Centralized Application:
Online application (CSDCAS Application) Your application must be marked by CSDCAS as "Complete" no later than January 1st in order to be considered for admission. It is ok if the application has not yet been verified or mailed.
- Application fee
- Statement of purpose (Guide to Writing a Statement of Purpose, Statement of Purpose Basics)
- Three letters of recommendation (Recommendation Letters)
- Official transcripts from all institutions attended. Please refer to CSDCAS instructions.
Materials to be submitted to Purdue University:
Important Note: The Purdue application, application fee, resume, and test scores must be received by January 1st in order to be considered for admission.
- Online application (Graduate Application)
- Statement of Purpose. The Purdue application system will not let you proceed without completing this section. However, your statement of purpose should be sent to the CSDCAS centralized application service only. When completing this section, merely enter "On file with CSDCAS", or any other statement along those same lines.
- Resume or curriculum vita. This is an optional field in the application system, but is required by the department.
- List your recommenders. The Purdue application system will not let you proceed without completing this section. However, recommenders for clinical applicants should submit letters to CSDCAS only. When completing this section, fill in the recommender information but use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org for all of them. This will prevent your recommenders from receiving requests from both CSDCAS and from Purdue.
- Diversity Essay. This is optional. However, you must complete the diversity essay to be considered for the Knox Fellowship award. (The David M. Knox Fellowships are awarded to Master's and Au.D-seeking students to enhance the diversity of the graduate student body through the recruitment of students with diverse backgrounds, views and experiences. Recipients of Knox Fellowships must have graduated from an accredited U.S. high school.)
- Application fee.
- Official GRE scores (Purdue’s institution code is 1631; no department code needs to be specified)
- Official transcripts from all institutions attended. Please upload copies of your official transcripts to the application system. The Purdue Graduate School will use these documents for admission purposes. If you wish to be considered for the Knox Fellowship you must upload your transcripts prior to January 1st so they can be included with your application for the award. All applicants must also submit updated transcripts after any Fall grades post, but prior to February 15th. Any transcripts sent electronically through an approved e-service (e-SCRIP, etc) must be sent to the Graduate School at email@example.com. International transcripts must be received in their original form and in translation, along with copies of any diplomas awarded.
- For those whose first-language is not English, we require official test scores less than 2 years old from one of the following: TOEFL iBT or IELTS (Note that the SLHS English proficiency requirements for clinical students are more stringent than those set by the Purdue Graduate School; see link for International Students.
We realize the double application can be a bit confusing. Please read and follow the above posted instructions carefully to ensure your application is submitted properly and eligible for review.
