- What is your minimum GPA requirement?
The University Graduate School recommends that students have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale). You can find these statistics for the AuD here.
- Are admissions decisions based solely on GPA?
No. In addition to GPA, our admissions committee reviews each applicant’s letters of recommendation, personal statement, and any other information that will establish the candidate’s potential to be successful in our graduate degree programs.
- Do you require the GRE?
- How many students are admitted into your graduate programs each year?
We usually admit about 40 students to the AuD program, with a target class size of 10.
- How much will it cost to attend Indiana University?
See the Tuition Fee page of the Indiana University Graduate School. Tuition rates for either graduate program are listed as Graduate rates.
For the AuD program, students must complete 90 credit hours. Please note that many classes, due to their clinical nature, also have an associated clinical fee (Science Infrastructure V), and you can find it’s amount here: https://studentcentral.indiana.edu/pay-for-college/cost-of-iu/semester-fees.html. This fee is assessed per class, not per credit hour.
- What kind of funding is available?
We have only a few general Assistant Instructorships (AI funds) available, and these are usually offered to incoming students with the highest merit. These AI funds typically include a tuition waiver and a stipend for the student's first year of the program.
Students who have taken several levels (usually at least 4 semesters) of American Sign Language (ASL) may also qualify for funding as AIs for the many ASL courses offered in our department. Students are encouraged to describe their ASL or other special skills in the application to graduate program. Applications must be complete by January 15 to be considered for funding.
All students who apply to AuD degree programs are automatically considered for funding through these two mechanisms, as applicable to the applicant. As such, students do not need to inquire about the possibility of receiving funding. Students who will be offered funding will receive that offer as soon as funding is available.
- My application has been placed on the wait list. When will I hear if I am accepted?
Because students who are accepted during the initial round of admissions have until April 15 to respond, the earliest that students who are on the waitlist will hear further information about their application is the last week of April.
- What are Indiana University’s residency requirements?
If you have questions about Indiana University’s residency requirements, please contact the Registrar’s Office.
- Can I visit the department?
Of course, we always welcome student visits. Please contact our Graduate Secretary, Kimberly Elkins, to schedule a visit.
- What if I have more questions about your program?
Answers to most questions may be found in our Student Handbook, located in the Student Portal. You may also email the AuD Program coordinator for additional information.
