    All foreign coursework must be evaluated by a Foreign Credential Service. We also require TOEFL/IELTS Scores for any applicant for whom English is their second language (scores are considered on a case by case basis). Please refer to our International Applicants webpage for more information and TOEFL/IELTS exemptions.

  10. Technical Standards

    The AuD program has established a document of technical standards that reflects the functions that are considered essential to the profession of audiology. Ability to meet these technical standards is required for admission. You may access the Technial Standards - TTUHSC AuD Program document here.

Application Process

Applications are considered on a rolling basis for acceptance into the professional program. Individual applications are reviewed once materials have been received; therefore, it is in the applicant's best interest to complete their application, including submission of required documentation, as early as possible. Fulfillment of the basic requirements does not guarantee admission.

Applicants who meet the above listed requirements and are deemed competitive candidates for admission will be invited to TTUHSC for an interview. The admissions committee selects the most qualified applicants for admission by considering the following: cumulative GPA, prerequisite science GPA, interview scores, student essay, and other factors.

Interviews

Admission interviews are granted by the AuD admissions committee by invitation only. Applicants are selected for interviews based on a holistic evaluation of their application and supporting documents.
