Students admitted to the Communication Disorders program must have a 3.00 GPA. All courses in Area F and major courses must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher. If a student’s GPA falls below 2.75, the student will have one semester (fall or spring) to restore it to or above 2.75. If the GPA remains below 2.75 for two consecutive semesters (not including summer), the student will be required to select another major.
