Students who have not declared Communicative Disorders may request a change of major at any point in their undergraduate program assuming space is available.

They are required to complete all the necessary course work leading to the baccalaureate degree.
All students must apply to the graduate program in order to continue their professional academic training after the baccalaureate degree.
