When to apply

Au.D. students wishing to pursue the combined Au.D./Ph.D. degree must declare this interest and be admitted into the Ph.D. program no later than the end of the second academic year in the Au.D. program. Likewise, Ph.D. students wishing to pursue this combined degree must do so no later than the end of the second academic year in the Ph.D. program. Preferably, interested students will make this decision sooner in the second year of their respective programs. Should you decide to pursue a combined Au.D./Ph.D. after the end of the second academic year, a maximum of only 15 credits from the Au.D. can be counted toward Ph.D.—equivalent to the amount required to fulfill the “outside minor” for the Ph.D. degree. The foregoing guidelines regarding the combined (concurrent) Au.D./Ph.D. and sequential Au.D./Ph.D. programs are consistent with University Graduate School guidelines regarding such degrees.
