Yes, we do accept applications for admission in the Spring semester. However, we will only admit students for the spring if there is space available. The deadline for such applications is November 15.
The graduate curriculum and clinical programs, both on and off campus, function best when students enter the program in the Fall semester. We are better able to sequence courses for such students and can better forecast our need to recruit patients for our on-campus clinic and to arrange for off-campus school and medical placement opportunities.
If you apply for Spring admission and are not successful, you can reapply for admission for the following Fall semester.
Deadline for accepting offers for fall admittance is April 15.
Deadline for accepting offers for spring admittance is December 15.
No, admission cannot be deferred. Note that this is a policy of the graduate program in speech-language pathology, not of the Marquette University Graduate School.
Applicants must re-apply for admission the following year. You will be considered again for financial aid in the next year's admission cycle. It is not guaranteed that a scholarship offer will be repeated from one year to the next.
