Program Guaranteed Admissions Program (GAP-AuD)
This partnership offers eligible USF students who have been admitted to the Judy Genshaft
Honors College a guaranteed admissions pathway ("GAP-AuD Program") to the Doctor of
Audiology (AuD) graduate program.
Students in the GAP-AuD Program will complete their undergraduate education in four
years at the University of South Florida. After securing their baccalaureate degree
with a major in Language, Speech and Hearing Sciences (LSH) or Biomedical Sciences
(BMS), they will enter the USF AuD program.
The LSH major plan may be found here.
the BMS major plan may be found here.
The AuD degree will be conferred after the successful completion of the four-year
AuD curriculum (see here).
Students who are eligible for the program are first-time in college students who are
admitted to the Judy Genshaft Honors College at USF and complete the requirements
specified below. The Judy Genshaft Honors College will coordinate overall completion
of the baccalaureate degree, with students receiving advising and schedule planning
each semester from the LSH or Chemistry undergraduate advisor (depending on whether
the undergraduate degree is LSH or BMS) and an Honors College pre-health professional
advisor. The USF AuD Program (Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders)
will provide oversight of completion of the four-year AuD degree.
