Graduate CSD Certificate

The Graduate Certificate Program in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) consists of ten (10) courses (28 credits) of prerequisite courses in speech, language, and hearing senses and development.

Students must successfully complete the prerequisite courses with a GPA of 3.0 and a minimum grade of “C” in each class. For any courses in the Graduate Certificate program in CSD that are eligible for transfer to the Masters' program in SLP (see Graduate course catalog), a minimum grade of "B" is required.

To be awarded the Graduate Certificate in CSD, the student must complete all of the courses in the Certificate at FIU.

Students in the Graduate Certificate in CSD are required to be continuously enrolled in at least two courses per semester (except when taking the last course in the certificate program).

All students are required to complete the certificate within four continuous semesters, which includes summer semesters.

All courses are typically offered every semester, including summers. These courses meet the requirements to apply for the Master of Science program in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP). However, please note that successful completion of the certificate does not guarantee acceptance into the MS-SLP program. Please click on the button below to view the complete program of Study:
