Communicative Disorders - Application Process
for Bachelor, Credential and Master of Science Programs

The Communicative Disorders program at San Francisco State University is designed to provide multiple entry opportunities for both graduates and undergraduates. Students may declare Communicative Disorders as their major at the freshman level. However, they do not begin course work in Communicative Disorders until completion of their General Education requirements, which occurs at the beginning of the junior year.

Students may transfer to San Francisco State University at the junior year, declaring Communicative Disorders as their major, and begin taking course work.

Students who have not declared Communicative Disorders as their major may request a change of major at any point in their undergraduate program upon advising and assuming space is available. Students are required to complete all the necessary coursework 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.

Graduate transfer students may enter the program following formal admission procedures and selection processes. Students who do not possess a baccalaureate degree in Communicative Disorders may expect to spend at least four semesters completing the undergraduate coursework. (Refer to the program fliers for specific information concerning undergraduate coursework.)

Application for the credential and master of science include completing both a department and an university application. Credential applicants must follow requirements outlined for the Speech Language Pathology Serveices credential; Master of Science applicants must follow the requirements outlined for Master of Science degree.
