Admission & Retention Requirements
A student entering Delta State University with plans to major in Speech and Hearing Sciences is initially admitted on a provisional basis and will remain on a provisional status until he/she has acquired a minimum of 24 hours of SHS courses (12 of which must be taken at Delta State University).
The student must also have earned a QPA of no less than 2.5 in all completed SHS courses. Once this level of achievement has been attained, the student is required to maintain a QPA of 2.60 or higher in all major courses in order to enroll in SHS 430 Clinical Practicum. A student may repeat no more than three (3) SHS courses for grade improvement.
A transfer student is held to these same requirements. Courses in communicative disorders taken at other four-year institutions with approved undergraduate programs must be considered individually before transfer credit may be allowed. Credit for SHS courses taken at other institutions for which the student earned lower than C will not be applied to requirements for graduation.
