Cooperative Program in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology
The C of I Cooperative Program in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is a collaborative effort with Idaho State University (ISU). Under ordinary circumstances, students will attend C of I for three years, and then enter the ISU program for their senior year. When students have successfully completed the ISU program, they will receive an Idaho State University Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences & Disorders, Emphasis in Pre-Speech-Language Pathology or Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences & Disorders, Emphasis in Pre-Audiology, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree from The College of Idaho.
Entrance into the ISU program is competitive. ISU has offered three to five admission seats to C of I students each year, but it is possible that more than five C of I students will apply. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in all prerequisite courses. Due to the competitive nature of this program, students are strongly advised to pursue a complementary major or course of study along with the program prerequisites (though they will not need to complete it if they articulate into the ISU program) .
During their course-work at C of I, students will be required to complete 93 credits, including all C of I Liberal Arts Core requirements, in addition to all of the prerequisite courses for the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Program.
