Non-Degree Seeking Online
For those not seeking a degree through USU, courses are available for credit. Generally, students enrolled in other universities are referred to us in order to take courses relevant to their area of study. We offer a wide array of courses, covering topics like: the basic structure and function of the human ear, hearing loss treatments, and the factors affecting language acquisition.
USU has been offering its online delivery for over 10 years, perfecting the online, higher-educational experience. Take it from those who have been through the program; out of a survey of nearly 700 students, 95.8% said they would recommend our online COMDDE program and courses to others.
Financial aid is no longer limited to just degree-seeking students, you may contact USU's Financial Aid office directly to see if you qualify as a non-degree seeking student as it is on an individual basis.
If you want prerequisites waived, you will be expected to have necessary background knowledge to be successful prior to enrolling.
Before registering please consult with your academic advisor to make sure you are registering for classes in the correct sequence.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED COURSES (NOT INCLUDED IN THIS PROGRAM)
The following non-COMD courses are strongly recommended and may be required for certain graduate schools. Most graduate schools require a statistics course as a requirement for admission. Statistics will have to be in a Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) student's record in order to be eligible for ASHA certification. A statistics course is required for the COMDDE bachelor’s degree and is strongly recommended for all 2nd bachelor’s degree students. If it has been more than one year since you have completed the prerequisite math course, taking Statistics through USU will require completion of a math placement exam. For more information, please check with your advisor as you plan your coursework. Some of these non-COMD courses may not be available online at USU or taught every semester.
