The two-year Graduate Program, housed in the Graduate Studies Program and in the College of Arts and Sciences, admitted its first students in August 1996. The program was accredited by The Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association on May 1, 2000. On August 14, 2013, the program was placed on probationary status. The following statement explains:
The master's of science program in speech-language pathology at Texas A & M University - Kingsville has been placed on probation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. A program on probation is not currently in full compliance with the accreditation standards. Programs on probation remain accredited but must demonstrate compliance with the standards within one year.
Upon completion of all academic and clinical Program requirements, graduate students receive a Master of Science Degree in Speech-Language Pathology.
All admission materials are to be received by the institution by January 15th of each year for consideration for Fall admission. For spring admission (January start) materials must be received by September 15th. Admission consideration will not be considered until the institution has received all required admission materials. It is the responsibility of the prospective student to ensure that his/her file is complete by the deadline.
When evaluating applicants, we take into consideration the following - GRE Scores, Reference Ratings Scores, GPA (Overall gpa, last 60 hours gpa, and CSDO major gpa), and repeated courses (deductions will be made for courses repeated 2 or more times).
Candidates for the Fall Graduate Program will be notified of their admission status by April 15, or as soon after that date as is possible. Candidates for the Spring graduate Program will be notified of their admission status by November 1, or as soon as possible after that date.
