Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (4 years)

Description

Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology is a four-year health sciences program dealing with the study of human communications, its development, and the functional and organic disorders that may affect it. It culminates in a one-year internship program that prepares speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Additionally, the program prepares SLPs to provide aural rehabilitation for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and provide augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems for individuals with severe expressive and/or language comprehension disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder or progressive neurological disorders.

Program Policies

  • The passing grade for all courses, following the official conversion table is 75%.
  • Grades in all courses are computed on Base 65
    • e.g., for a 100-item exam, the passing score is 65/100.
  • Grades in all skills laboratory courses are computed on Base 75.

FINAL GRADE

Equal to the average of 3 SHIFTING GRADES

  • If ≥ 74.50% = PASS
  • If ≤74.49% = FAILURE

For all courses with Lecture and Laboratory:

There will be two separate grades for

  • Lecture
  • Laboratory

Failure in either will not affect passing grade in the other.

A student with a failing grade with lecture and laboratory components will not be allowed to enroll in any course that has the failed component as prerequisite.

In order to be promoted to the second year of the program, the student must meet the program’s minimum general weighted average (GWA) as computed by the Office of the Registrar by the end of the Second Term of the First Year, as follows:

  • Physical Therapy – 2.750
  • Occupational Therapy – 2.750
  • Speech-Language Pathology – 2.750
  • Sports Science – 2.750

Failure to meet the required minimum GWA will mean the student will be taken out of the program in the College and tagged as NTBR (Not to be Readmitted).

  • Also known as NTBR (Not To Be Readmitted)
  • Accumulated failures > 9 units
  • Failures > 1/2 their load for IRREGULAR Students
  • Failure in the same subject twice
  • 1st-year students who in the 1st term incur failures of >9 units may be allowed to enroll ON PROBATION in the 2nd term in courses authorized by the Dean. However, they will not be readmitted to the next academic year.
  • No student shall be allowed to take any third-year course with deficiencies in any second-year course, including PE and NSTP.
  • No student in the College shall be allowed to shift to another program within the College at any period of his/her stay in the College.
  • Professional courses are only offered once a year.
  • Failure in any professional course will cause a delay of at least a year in the student’s program study.
