29 Sep 2020    By Kelcey Buck

The Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders (SECD) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is temporarily suspending the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) score requirement for students applying to its graduate programs. 

Due to testing challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, students seeking to enroll in any of the department’s graduate programs beginning in the summer or fall of 2021 will not be required to submit a GRE score with their applications. This includes applications for the following programs: Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology, Master of Arts and Master of Education in Special Education, Clinical Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Educational Studies, and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Human Sciences. 

The next application deadline for the master’s programs, as well as the Au.D. program, is Jan. 15. The Ph.D. programs offer rolling admission. For more information about all of the graduate programs in SECD, visit the department's website. Anyone with questions about the SECD graduate programs may email Graduate Coordinator Jill England.
