+-FAQs

Q: I have a 2.99 GPA.  Can I still apply to the Post Bac CSD Program?
A: Applicants must have a minimum undergrad GPA of 3.0 to be considered for Chapman University’s Post Bac Communication Sciences and Disorders Program. Though each applicant is reviewed holistically, your undergrad GPA will also be evaluated when applying to a master’s program in CSD. We feel it would be a disservice to the applicant if we accept below the requirement because we know that graduate programs in Communication Sciences are very competitive. Courses taken post undergrad will not be calculated into your undergrad GPA. Your undergrad GPA must be a minimum of 3.0 to apply.  Applicants with a GPA of 2.99 will not be considered. Other institutions may have alternate alternate requirements.  

Q: Can I work full-time and attend the Post Bac CSD cohort program?
A: The Post Bac CSD cohort meets Fridays 5:00pm – 9:30pm and Saturdays from 8:00am to 5:00pm.  Students may choose to work full-time. The program is intensive, so it’s up to the student to decide if a full-time work schedule and the Post Bac CSD program is manageable.  

Q: I’ve taken a couple of the courses at another university. Can these courses be transferred?
A: No.  Our Post Bac CSD Program is a cohort program. All students must successfully complete all 10 courses to receive a certificate.  

Q: I just need to take one of the courses you offer?  How can I register?
A: We do not offer these courses as individual courses. These courses are taught in a cohort and all 10 courses must be completed to receive a certificate.  

Q: Can I apply for financial aid?
A: Unfortunately, federal financial aid is not available for post-baccalaureate students enrolled through Extended Education. A FAFSA application is not relevant.  

Q: How can I finance my tuition?
A: Private loans can be secured for this program. Please review the private loan options under the “Financing Your Education” tab above.  

Q: Is the total amount of tuition due in full before the program begins?
A: No.  Our program is divided into 5 terms, 2 courses per term. Students will be registered (by the Office of Extended Education) the month prior to the beginning of each term for 2 courses each term. Payment for each term is due prior to the start of the term.

A: Yes.  

Q: Can I apply to graduate school before I finish the program?
A: Yes, you may apply, but consider what will make you a strong contender because graduate programs are highly competitive.  

Q: What makes this post bac program different from other programs?
A: This is a cohort model and there are no additional admits to the class once it begins. Faculty, in addition to teaching in the program, also have ‘real world’ work experience. This brings an interesting, insightful and helpful perspective to the program. It is an ‘intense’ course of study.  Classes meet on the weekends for 10 months and then you have completed the certificate program. Students are assured of getting classes and finishing the program with the timeframe provided.
