- When should I apply to the Speech and Hearing graduate program?
To be admitted to the fall semester for each year, you must submit your completed application to Indiana University by January 15.
- How do I apply to the Speech and Hearing graduate program?
Although we prefer to receive electronic applications, paper versions are also accepted. You can access the electronic application at the University Graduate School website. If you decide to apply with a paper application or if you have letters of recommendation that are completed on the hard copy form, please submit those materials to:
Kimberly S. Elkins
Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences
200 S. Jordan Avenue
Bloomington, IN 47405-7002
Phone: (812) 855-4202
Fax: (812) 855-5531.
- I am (or was) a student at Indiana University. Do I need to send my Indiana University transcripts to the department?
No, you do not need to order transcripts from Indiana University. However, if you transferred to Indiana University from another university/college, you must submit the transcript(s) from that school, even if it already appears on your Indiana University transcript. If you have any other questions about transcripts, please contact our Administrative Secretary, Kimberly Elkins, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Do the three letters of recommendation have to be submitted in the same way (i.e., either all as hard copies or all online)?
No. It is fine if, for example, one of your recommenders sends his/her letter as a hard copy, while the other recommenders submit their letters online.
- Do all of the application materials have to be submitted at the same time?
No. You do not have to submit all of your application materials at the same time—they may be sent individually.
- Are there any specific questions or topics I should address in my 300-500 word personal statement?
We have no specific requirements about the content of the personal statement other than what is stated in the graduate school application instructions (i.e., current goals, career plans, and reason for selecting the field). If you are applying to the bilingual-track, STEPS, it is requested you indicate this in your personal statement.
- Who do I contact if I have questions about the online application?
Please contact the University Graduate School at 812-855-8853 or email@example.com.
- When will I hear about my application?
Admission letters are typically sent out in early March indicating whether a student has been accepted and whether the student is being offered funding or is being considered for funding. Students who are accepted to the program have until April 15 to reply.
