DIPLOMAS

Diplomas are sent to all students (main campus & distance education) approximately 8-10 weeks following graduation.

Undergraduate students who qualify for honors will have it noted on their transcript as well as on their diplomas. The undergraduate student is required to have completed 40 USU credit hours in order to qualify for Latin honors.

Degrees can be posted as early as the Monday following graduation up to about 8 weeks after graduation.

POST-GRADUATION

As the curriculum is designed to meet pre-professional training requirements, students completing their degree are qualified to apply for admission to masters' program in speech-language pathology or clinical doctoral programs in audiology. While different graduate programs may have their own specific additional acceptance requirements, students should check with those graduate programs of interest to assure that this online degree program meets the necessary prerequisite course requirements.

When 2nd bachelor's degree students apply to graduate schools, some or all of their prior degree credits and grades could be calculated into the 2nd bachelor's degree GPA considered for graduate school admission.  Therefore, a low GPA from a previous degree could adversely impact graduate school admission. Applicants may want to check the specific process used by those graduate schools where they will apply.
