Application & Admission Process:  Thank you for your interest in the Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree program at the University of Connecticut (UConn). The admission process at UConn is highly selective. We are looking for those students who will excel at UConn and in the field of Audiology. The Admission Committee carefully reviews every application. A variety of factors is considered when evaluating applications including the student’s academic record, performance on the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) (waived for Fall 2020 application cycle) and letters of recommendation.  Equally important is the student’s motivation for study, commitment, and personal background. A strong command of written and spoken English as evidenced in the applicant’s written essay, GRE writing score, and communications with the department is also considered.

We require a dual application process – that is you must apply through both the CSDCAS application portal and the UConn Slate application portal in order to be considered for admission to our program.
