Admissions Information

IMPORTANT UPDATE: For students applying during the Fall 2022 application cycle for admission to our program with a matriculation date of Fall 2023, GRE scores are not required for the application.  If your UConn Slate application is flagging your application for missing scores, please contact


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 2022 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 have a dual application process – you must apply through both the CSDCAS application portal and the UConn Slate application portal to be considered for admission.

On-Campus Interview:  After a review of the application materials selected applicants will be invited to an on-campus interview, before admissions decisions are made. The interview is an opportunity for applicants to share their experiences, discuss future goals, and add a personal touch to their application.

All Majors Considered: An undergraduate major in communication disorders is not required for admission. Applicants who do not have a background in speech and hearing sciences and communication disorders however, may need to complete prerequisite coursework.

Funding – Information on funding opportunities can be found at the Graduate School Funding Opportunities

Entrance Requirements – Upon admission to our program, students should be aware that a background check and drug screening will be required. These requirements will continue throughout your duration in the program.
