Welcome Letter

Dear Graduate School Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in our graduate program. You can apply via the Communication Science and Disorders Centralized Application Service (CSDCAS).

Each application is reviewed by members of our School of Communicative Disorders (ComD) if it meets our application requirements. The deadline for all application materials is Jan. 16, 2015. You will be able to check the status of your application on the CSDCAS site.

If you are an international student, please let me know immediately and special instructions will be sent to you. An international student must submit an application to the International Students and Scholars Office at UWSP. 

I recommend beginning the application process as soon as possible when the site opens in mid September 2014 semester prior to applying. Incomplete application files will not be reviewed. It is your responsibility to make sure all components of the application are completed prior to the deadline. I also recommend informing the people writing letters of recommendation for you of the Jan. 16, 2015, deadline because it is earlier than many other graduate programs.
