Requirements for International Students

The graduate program in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders for Speech-Language Pathology welcomes the diversity provided by students from various nations and cultures. We offer admission to applicants who appear to have the highest potential for graduate study and who are the most likely to contribute to their academic and professional field through research and/or professional practice.

Applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution or a recognized institution in another country before applying to the two or three year program.

If you hold a bachelor's degree in something other than Communication Sciences and Disorders and are not planning on taking our five (5) prerequisite courses, please review the information on Grad Plus students on the How to Apply webpage.

In addition to the requirements listed for U.S. citizens, you must send CSDCAS your transcript evaluation which has been evaluated by IERF or WES. You must also take and submit the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or the Pearson Test of English (PTE). The code to send scores to CSDCAS is C122. Passing scores are as follows:

At least a 80 on the TOEFL

At least an 4.5 on the IELTS

At least an 80 on the PTE

Please make sure you take the exam in time for CSDCAS to receive the scores. Your application can be reviewed by the department without a financial statement. However, if you are admitted, you will be required to submit one before enrolling at Redlands. Non U.S. citizens must show proof of financial resources to cover the expenses of the program (minimum of U.S. $41,000). If funding for a degree program is provided by a sponsoring agency, please include a letter from that agency indicating the amount of support that will be furnished. If funding is from a personal source, please send a certified bank statement showing activity in the account for the past six months.
