UWM School & College Realignment: As part of UWM’s long-term strategic planning, several UWM schools and colleges are being realigned effective July 1, 2023. Learn more.

If you are planning to continue your education at the graduate level you should note that the UWM MS Communication Sciences & Disorders Program requires a minimum 3.0 GPA for admission with full graduate standing. Admission to graduate programs is highly competitive. A 3.0 GPA does not guarantee admission. To be competitive with other graduate school applicants, it is recommended that you maintain an overall GPA greater than 3.5.

Use UWM’s Graduation website to review campus-wide graduation requirements, graduation application deadlines, applying for graduation, and ordering your cap and gown.

The following requirements must be met to graduate:

  1. Complete the required 120 credits
  2. Satisfactory completion of the required courses in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, those required outside of the department
  3. Complete all of UWM General Education Requirements
  4. Have a cumulative UWM GPA of 2.5
  5. Completion of the last 30 credits in residence at UWM

Proficiency Requirements

There are no proficiency requirements at the undergraduate level.

Certification Requirements for Professional Practice

Because a Master’s Degree is required for professional practice as a speech-language pathologist or audiologist, you are certified at the graduate level.
