Communicative Sciences and Disorders Preparation Program
California State University San Marcos Extended Learning is now offering a fully online CSD Preparation program to prepare students for a Master of Arts in Education, Option in Communicative Sciences and Disorders (CSD). View/download our CSD Prep Flyer.
The CSD Prep program is designed for individuals missing all of the prerequisites for the Masters of Arts in Education with an option in Communicative Science Disorders program. Priority admission is given to those applicants who have not completed any of the prerequisites upon evaluation. Those applicants who have completed one or more of the prerequisites will be placed on a waiting list and ranked based on the number of prerequisite classes they still need to complete. Should space become available in the preparation program after the priority admissions cycle is completed, these individuals may be offered a spot in the preparation program. We strongly recommend that any individuals who have completed 1 or more of the prerequisite courses explore completing their remaining prerequisites as a non-matriculated student. See Non-Cohort Course Options for more information.
The CSD Preparation Program is a full-time cohort program. In order to be eligible to participate in this Program, students will be required to take specific, chronological courses beginning Spring 2015. See Course List for courses and sequence.
Financial aid eligibility for the CSD Prep Program beginning in Spring 2015 is under review. If you hope to finance your education by using financial aid, we encourage you to complete your financial aid application, FAFSA, as soon as possible. Completing your FAFSA application now should help expedite the processing of your financial aid if or when the program becomes eligible. For further information, please contact Extended Learning at (760)750-4020.
Students who apply and complete all of the CSD Prep Program courses will receive a University Communicative Sciences and Disorders Preparation Certificate.
Applications for the Spring 2015 CSD Prep Cohort are now open. Applications must be received by November 1st, 2014 to be fully considered. We will continue to accept applications until the classes are full.
