Apply to Au.D. Program

Application Procedures for the AuD Program

The university deadline for admission to the fall semester is January 15 for US applicants. International applicants must apply through the Office of International Services and have an application deadline of January 1. We only consider applications for the spring and summer semesters under certain circumstances (e.g., transfer students and those who have completed previous AuD coursework). Please contact the coordinator of the AuD program, wshofner @ indiana.edu (Dr. William Shofner), if you would like to apply to a different semester or if you have specific questions regarding the application process.
