To declare a major in Communication Disorders at the University of Northern Iowa, students must have an overall grade point average of 3.00 or consent of the department head. The declaration of major is usually made in the semester following enrollment in CSD 1000 - Understanding Communication Disorders. Students may complete a declaration as a prospective major in Communication Disorders in their freshman year or when they transfer into the University or major. Completion of the declaration as a prospective major ensures that the student will be assigned an advisor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
