To facilitate those students needing prerequisites to enter a master's program, ENMU offers speech pathology courses online to satisfy the leveling requirements necessary to gain admittance to the ENMU Master of Science in Communicative Disorders degree program or master's programs at other universities. With a competitive Praxis examination pass rate, 100% employment for our graduates and incredibly low tuition, the ENMU master's in communicative disorders is a top program choice.
ENMU Speech Therapy Classes Online May be Eligible for Financial Aid
As a CDIS graduate student, if you are taking leveling courses, you may be eligible for financial aid for one calendar year, regardless of the number of hours you take. If you wish to take CDIS leveling courses, you should apply to the ENMU Graduate School as a CDIS leveler. This admission status affects your financial aid only, and does not imply admission into the CDIS graduate program.
Graduate Application and Admission
If you already have a bachelor's degree and are seeking to complete prerequisites in order to apply to a graduate program in communication disorders (leveling), you must apply as a graduate student, CDIS leveler. You can apply online.
Acceptance as a graduate student at ENMU does not ensure your admission into the CDIS graduate program. Admission to the graduate program in CDIS (if you wish to take 500 level courses for completion of the master's in CDIS) is a separate process with different admission requirements. ENMU does not offer a completely online graduate program. Your first semester of clinical practicum as an ENMU student must be completed on campus for the M.S. in CDIS.
Undergraduate Application and Admission
All online courses are offered at least once per year. Details about course rotations, prerequisites, and course length are listed on our CDIS Course Rotations and Suggested Course of Study page. Graduate non-degree seeking (leveling) students may complete the CDIS leveling sequence in a single year, but only by attending full-time and by beginning in the summer session (recommended) or the fall session (more difficult but possible). The sequence cannot be completed in one year if the sequence is started in a spring semester.
Some of our students in CDIS choose to attend the University on a part time basis. Most students who are working full time go to school part time as it is very difficult to complete a full-time load (12 hours) of CDIS coursework and maintain job responsibilities simultaneously. Suggested course of study options for part-time enrollment using both 8- and 16-week courses are available on our CDIS Course Rotations and Suggested Course of Study page. A part-time course of leveling study generally takes two years, but students are welcome to progress at their own pace.
