Transfer Students in Undergraduate CDS Program

It is possible for transfer students to successfully complete the undergraduate CDS program in 2, 2.5, or 3 years. For a variety of reasons, faculty recommend the 3-year option as optimal and suggest the 2-year option is most challenging. Many courses are offered in sequence and only once per year, therefore beginning the program in a fall term is strongly recommended. 

A 2-page pdf handout is available to download.  Information about why students should consider studying Communication Disorders and Sciences at EIU is included on the first page while information about applying to graduate school and pros and cons of 2, 2 1/2 and 3-4 year study plans in the major are on the second page.
