ADMISSIONS POLICIES

Ph.D. PROGRAMS IN COMMUNICATION SCIENCES AND
DISORDERS (CSD)


For information and links to application forms please go to our departmental website.

You may also write, e-mail, or telephone me at:

Dr. Scott K. Griffiths, Graduate Coordinator Department of
Communication Sciences and Disorders 336 Dauer Hall University of
Florida Gainesville, FL 32611-7420 (352) 392-2113 ext. 248

The Doctor of Philosophy is a research degree. The aim of the Ph.D. program is to
prepare individuals for the generation of new knowledge in the basic and applied aspects
of communication and its disorders. A further aim is the transmission of accumulated
knowledge within the discipline. Thus, many graduates will locate themselves in
university settings where they will teach, perform research, and/or contribute service to
the profession and to their institutions. Others will perform research and scholarly
functions in teaching hospitals and other medical environments. Still others will conduct
research in laboratory settings, both public and private. Criteria for admission to the
doctoral program, as well as to candidacy, have been set accordingly.

The success of the Ph.D. experience hinges on the relationship between the
student/candidate and the faculty mentor. Thus, a required early step for someone
considering entering into a Ph.D. program is identifying potential faculty mentors for the
area of research the applicant wishes to pursue. It is highly recommended that potential
applicants consider what specific area of research they expect to undertake, and seek out
an appropriate potential faculty mentor. The faculty and graduate coordinator will work
to assist potential applicants in this process.









Minimum Requirements for Doctoral Study


A. A Graduate Record Exam (GRE) score: While preference will be given to
students with scores above the 50th percentile, scores from the GRE will be used
in the context of a holistic credential review process.
B. A satisfactory previous academic record: an upper division undergraduate GPA
of not less than 3.4 and/or a graduate GPA of not less than 3.5

C. At least three letters of recommendation indicating high potential for success in
the doctoral program from individuals qualified to assess such abilities (Follow-
up calls to these individuals may be made by the Graduate Committee or
concerned faculty).

D. An application portfolio prepared by the applicant to indicate potential success
in research, writing, teaching, etc. The packet should include as many as
possible of the following:

A well-written essay on career goals and objectives (required of
all applicants),

Copy of master's thesis or project if completed,
Copies of reprints, convention papers, etc. if any have been
completed, and,
Other supporting material that the applicant wishes to submit
for consideration.

E. An interview with the applicant if deemed necessary by the Graduate Committee
and other relevant faculty.

F. International students must submit a satisfactory score on the TOEFL (Test of
English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing
System), MELAB (Michigan English Language Assessment Battery) or
successful completion of the University of Florida English Language Institute
program. See below and the graduate catalog for exemptions to this requirement.

Admissions Decisions
The CSD Graduate Committee makes decisions regarding admission to the Speech-
language pathology, Audiology, and communication sciences doctoral programs. The
committee includes the Graduate Coordinator, the Program Director, and other graduate
faculty members. The committee receives input also from the potential faculty mentors
for all Ph.D. applicants. Upon approval by the Graduate Admissions Committee, the
potential faculty mentor presents the applicant's materials to the full faculty. Applicants
must be approved by program faculty before the file is sent on to the Graduate School.
The final decision regarding admission to the doctoral program is made by the Graduate
School, upon recommendation of the Graduate Admissions Committee.












The Doctoral Program


Initial Advising
Upon your acceptance of the offer of admission to the doctoral program, the Graduate
Committee will assign your potential faculty mentor as your initial advisor. This advisor
will review the accepted student's course work and make recommendations for the first
year of course work. Selection of course work will be guided by the program
requirements as well as the student's interests and needs.

Doctoral Supervisory Committee Policy

All doctoral students will form two supervisory committees during the course of their
doctoral program, the academic supervisory committee and the dissertation supervisory
committee.

The academic supervisory committee must be selected by the end of the second semester
of equivalent full time study in the doctoral program. The committee will consist of at
least four members from the graduate faculty. At least two members will be from the
Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, one of whom must be a full time
member of the department and have a direct interest in the area of specialty of the
student. At least one member will be drawn from a different discipline. All members of
the committee must have Graduate Faculty Status.

The academic supervisory committee shall meet, during the second semester, to
review the qualifications of the student and to discuss and approve a program of
study (see THE PROGRAM PLAN, below).
The approved program of study must be filed with the Department of
Communication Sciences and Disorders by the end of the second semester.
The academic supervisory committee will conduct the written and oral qualifying
examinations. Passage of the qualifying examinations qualifies the doctoral
student for admission to doctoral candidacy. See more about Qualifying
Examinations on page 9.

Upon passing the qualifying examination, a dissertation supervisory committee will be
formed. The dissertation committee will consist of at least four members (all of whom
must be present at the oral defense of the dissertation). Requirements for membership on
the dissertation supervisory committee are the same as those for the academic supervisory
committee.









The dissertation supervisory committee will:


Oversee the prospectus process, reviewing the proposed dissertation project with
its supporting review of the relevant literature and providing approval for the
planned dissertation project. The dissertation supervisory committee will meet at
least once with the candidate to the review the planned methods and the
supporting review of the literature.
Evaluate the written dissertation. The dissertation must be approved unanimously
by the official dissertation supervisory committee.
Conduct the Final Defense of the dissertation. The committee will evaluate the
student's defense of the dissertation and must unanimously approve.

The Program Plan

With assistance from the chairperson of your academic supervisory committee, you
will prepare a proposed Program Plan. By the end of your second semester of study,
you should meet with your academic supervisory committee to discuss the proposed
plan.

The Program Plan guides your program of study. It should include the following
information:

The names of your committee chairperson and other members of your
academic supervisory committee, with spaces for these individuals to sign
their approval of your plan,
Previous degree programs and degrees) earned,
A list of completed, current, and projected graduate coursework, organized by
area of specialty, cognate areass, and tool courses. You should provide the
course title, credits, and date of completion or projected completion,
A list of professional papers and publications,
A general statement about possible dissertation areas.

After your Program Plan has been reviewed, discussed and approved by the academic
supervisory committee, submit it to the Graduate Coordinator for review, and once
approved, file it with your committee chairperson and with the Graduate Secretary, who
will place a copy in your official file in the Department office.

After the Program Plan has been approved and filed, changes can only be made with
signature approval by your committee chairperson. If you want to make substantial
changes, you will need the approval of your academic supervisory committee.












QUALIFYING EXAMINATIONS


Through the qualifying examination, the academic supervisory committee determines the
breadth and depth of the student's competency in her/his areas of study, and ascertains
the adequacy of preparation for the completion of a dissertation. Students may take the
qualifying examinations as early as the middle of the third semester in the Ph.D. program,
subject to approval by the academic supervisory committee. The student must be
registered in the term in which the qualifying examination is given.

The examination, prepared and evaluated by the full supervisory committee, is both
written and oral and covers the major and minor subjects. All members of the
supervisory committee must be present with the student at the oral portion. For the
written qualifying examination, the student shall answer questions from each member of
his/her academic supervisory committee, and each member of the committee shall be
provided with a copy of all of the student's responses. There are several options that can
be considered for the written qualifying examinations and some of those options are
listed below. However, the format of the qualifying examination can be varied and is
under the purview of the supervisory committee members. It is the student's
responsibility to discuss the manner of the qualifying examinations with their mentor.

Options for the Written Oualifving Examinations

Traditional sit-down exam. With this option the student usually is given one book,
a series of readings, or a very specific topic to study in preparation. Then, on the
scheduled exam day, the student writes a response to one, two, or three questions
on the specified material. The committee member may give the student a set of
sample questions in advance or may give five or six questions on the exam day,
from which the student selects the agreed upon number to answer.

Topical or critical paper. With this option the student is given a specific topic or
question to research independently through the library or other readings. The
student then writes a paper (length to be specified by the committee member) on
the topic or question. Usually the topic or question is assigned several months
before the due date.

Research proposal. With this option the student is given a research problem and
asked to design a study that might answer a specific question related to it. If this
option is selected, the committee member should specify whether the student is to
assume that conditions are ideal or is to work with practical conditions as they
now exist in the department. A specific time allowance should be assigned, e.g.,
one month before exams.

Course design. With this option the student is asked to design a course,









undergraduate or graduate, on a specific topic that he/she would be likely to teach.
It usually includes the collection of reading materials, course objectives,
homework assignments to meet objectives, and a procedure for evaluating student
progress. A specific time allowance should be assigned.

*Collection of materials. With this option the student is asked to collect a set of
materials designed for a specific purpose, e.g., formal and informal evaluations of
early language development. The materials are organized in some logical format,
typically a notebook or portfolio. A specific time allowance should be assigned.

The Oral Qualifyin2 Examination

The Oral Qualifying examinations will follow the last written examination by a period of
between 2 and 8 weeks. The full academic Supervisory Committee shall meet with the
student for the oral exam. When necessary, a member of the committee may participate in
the meeting via teleconferencing.

Time Lapse Between the oral portion of the qualifying examination and the date of the
degree there must be a minimum of two semesters. The semester in which the Qualifying
examination is passed is counted, provided that the examination occurs before the
midpoint of the term.

If a student fails the qualifying examination, the Graduate School must be notified. A
reexamination may be requested, but it must be recommended by the Supervisory
Committee and approved by the Graduate School. At least one semester of additional
preparation is considered essential before re-examination.


THE DISSERTATION

Dissertation first submission: First submission of the dissertation is on plain paper. The
Graduate School Editorial Office must receive this by the Dissertation first submission
deadline, or at least 5 working days before the defense (whichever is sooner). For
checklist: http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/pdf-files/checklist-dissertation.pdf The Editorial
Office e-mails the student when the dissertation has been reviewed. The student is
responsible for retrieving the edited dissertation and review comments. Typically,
students make these changes after the defense, when they make their committee's
changes. Students then work diligently to make final submission and to procure
acceptance of the dissertation before the final acceptance deadline.

Electronic final submission: Students who entered in Fall 2001 or later must submit
their final dissertations electronically. For more information, visit
http://gradschool.rgp.ufl.edu/pdf-files/checklist-dissertation.pdf and
http://etd.circa.ufl.edu.
Each doctoral candidate must prepare and present a dissertation that shows









independent investigation and that is acceptable in form and content to the supervisory
committee and to the Graduate School. Dissertations must be written in English, except
for students pursuing degrees in Romance or German languages and literatures. Students
in these disciplines, with the approval of their supervisory committees, may write in the
topic language.
Since all dissertations are published by microfilm (and most are published
electronically), the work be of publishable quality and must be in a form suitable for
publication.

Publication of dissertation: All dissertation students must pay a $55 microfilm fee to
University Financial Services, S113 Criser Hall. All dissertation students also must sign
a microfilm agreement form.

Copyright: The student is automatically the copyright holder, by virtue of having
written the dissertation. A copyright page should be included immediately after the title
page to indicate this. Registering copyright is not required, and only benefits students
who might need to sue someone for money for infringing on their copyright. Most
dissertations do not involve money. If you choose to register copyright, provide $45
(certified check, cashier's check or money order payable to PQIL) with the signed
microfilm agreement form, including a permanent address where you can always be
reached. Because these checks go to PQIL months after graduation and take months to
process, make sure that the certified check, cashier's check, or money order is good for
at least a year.

Guidelines for Restriction on Release of Dissertations Research performed at the
University can effectively contribute to the education of our students and to the body of
knowledge that is our heritage only if the results of the research are published freely and
openly. Conflicts can develop when it is in the interests of sponsors of university
research to restrict such publication. When such conflicts arise, the University must
decide what compromises it is willing to accept, taking into account the relevant
circumstances. The AAU guidelines contained herein were adopted by the University of
Florida Graduate Council on January 19, 1989.

1. The recommendations of sponsors, which result from prepublication reviews of
research results and which affect subsequent publication of these results, should
be considered advisory rather than mandatory.

2. The maximum delay in publication allowed for pre-reviews should not exceed
three months.

3. There should be no additional delays in publication beyond the pre-review.
Timely submission of any patent or copyright applications should be the result of
effective communication between investigators and sponsors throughout the
course of the project.









4. There should be no restriction on participation in non-classified sponsored
research programs on the basis of citizenship.

5. Students should not be delayed in the final defense of their dissertations by
agreements involving publication delays.

Oral Dissertation Defense/Final Examination
After submitting the dissertation and completing all other work prescribed for the degree
(but no earlier than the term before the degree is awarded) the candidate is given a final
oral examination by the supervisory committee on campus. All members must be present
with the candidate at the oral examination. The candidate and the entire supervisory
committee must be present at the defense. The defense should be no more than 6 months
before degree award. All forms should be signed at the defense: the candidate and the
supervisory chair sign the ETD Right and Permission form; and the entire supervisory
committee should sign the ETD Signature Page and the Final Examination Report. If
dissertation changes are requested, the supervisory chair may hold the Final Examination
report until satisfied with the dissertation.
Satisfactory performance on the examination and adherence to all Graduate School
regulations outlined above complete the requirements for the degree.
Time Limitation: All work for the doctorate must be completed within five calendar years
after the qualifying examination, or this examination must be repeated.

CERTIFICATION
Doctoral candidates, who have completed all requirements for the degree, including
satisfactory defense and final acceptance of the dissertation, may request certification to
that effect prior to receipt of the degree. Certification request forms, available in the
Graduate School Editorial Office, should be filled out by the candidate, signed by the
supervisory chair and college dean, and returned to the Graduate School for verification
and processing.










Ph.D. PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS


90 doctoral credit hours (post Bachelors Degree) are required. The majority of our Ph.D.
students enter holding a previously earned graduate degree. Up to 30 graduate credit
hours from a previous Master's graduate degree may be counted in the 90-hour minimum,
provided the Master's degree was earned within the last seven years. Students may
petition for credit from Master's degrees completed earlier. See the Graduate Secretary,
Idella King (iking@csd.ufl.edu) for the information on this process. Students holding an
earned Au.D. degree may complete the Ph.D. with a minimum of 30 additional graduate

Lab rotations involve conducting research for one semester with faculty
members other than the primary mentor who are from within and outside
CSD department.
Course credit will be earned through courses SPA 5553 (Instrumentation),
SPA 6905 (Independent Study), SPA 6910 (Directed Research), or other
similar course for rotations in other departments.
Determination of faculty with whom lab rotations will be conducted will
be made by the student and primary mentor with recommendations from
the academic supervisory committee and will be included in the Program
Plan.
Determination of specific lab rotation project is to be determined between
the student and the lab rotation faculty for each project.
It is expected that a finished project result from the lab rotation (e.g.,
publication, paper, research tool, etc.). The project to be completed is pre-
determined between faculty member and student with written guidelines
of expectations for final grade.
Lab rotations must be complete before qualifying exams.

2. Qualifying lab rotation faculty: Faculty members must meet the
following requirements to supervise a lab rotation:

Graduate Faculty status
Willingness to supervise research for one semester
At least one rotation must be completed with a member (other than their
mentor) of the student's supervisory committee.
Adherence to pre-determined guidelines of project requirements

Optional Minor:

Ph.D. students in CSD may, with their academic supervisory committee's approval, opt
to establish a minor field or fields. Minor work may be completed in any academic unit
outside the major, provide that unit is approved for master's or doctoral programs as
listed in the graduate catalog. There must be a representative on the student's
supervisory committee from the minor academic unit. The student must achieve an
average grade of B (3.00) or higher in courses included in the minor. The minor will be
defined as no fewer than 12 credits of courses numbered 5000 or higher in an academic
unit outside the major. If two minors are chosen, each must include at least 8 credits.
Competence in the minor is demonstrated by written examination by the minor academic
unit, or by the oral qualifying examination. Course work for a single minor at the
doctoral level may include courses in more than one academic unit, provided the
objective of the minor is clearly stated and the combination of courses is approved by the
Graduate School (this approval is not required for a minor in one academic unit).









The Ph.D. following the Au.D. at UF:


The Ph.D. requirements for students completing the on-campus Au.D. are a minimum of
30 credit hours including:

1) 3 additional hours in statistics
2) 5 credit hours in research design
3) 3 credit hours in supervised teaching
4) 12 credit hours of dissertation research

A student's supervisory committee may require additional coursework to meet the
particular needs and/or interests. Students in the on-campus Au.D. program should be
encouraged to apply for admission as Ph.D. students by the end of their third year. By the
end of the second semester following admission to the Ph.D. program, students must
form their Ph.D. supervisory committee.

This committee may, but need not have any members in common with the student's
Au.D. supervisory committee. Audiologists holding an earned Au.D. from an accredited
institution will be required to complete at least 30 credit hours of graduate study to earn
the Ph.D. Progression through the program should include completion of coursework
specified by the supervisory committee, passing the qualifying exam, and completion of
at least 12 credit hours of dissertation research.
