The anticipated number of students for each cohort is 30.
If you have a bachelor’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology /Communication Sciences and Disorders, or if you have completed all of the necessary prerequisite coursework, you will be able to graduate in two years, including one summer session.
If I don’t have some or all of the prerequisite coursework, can I take it at Thomas Jefferson University?
At the present time, Thomas Jefferson University does not offer those courses. You would have to take them at another institution or online.
The University Office of Student Financial Aid at Thomas Jefferson University assists graduate students in securing federal, state, institutional and private funding to help meet the cost of education. In addition, scholarships may be available to highly qualified applicants.
Clinical assignments are made by the Director of Clinical Practice, but may be guided by the particular interests and/or geographical preferences of each student. Because placement at many sites is competitive, students may be required to interview for an externship.
Rather than a comprehensive exam, students will submit a portfolio in their final semester that represents their academic and clinical growth toward becoming competent entry-level clinicians.
