Apply to WMU

Note: You must have a minimum 2.0 GPA and you must not be on academic probation to declare the HSS major.

Continuance and Graduation policy

  • You must earn at least a C in all HSS core courses.
  • You may repeat a course to earn the required grade of C. Only two repeated courses will count toward degree requirements, that can be one course repeated twice or two courses repeated once each.
  • You must have a 2.5 cumulative GPA to take your capstone course. If you do not meet that requirement the semester before your capstone course, you may take an additional semester to raise your GPA to a 2.5 or better. If you do not meet the requirement after that semester, you will be dismissed from the program.

accelerated degree admissions

If you are interested in an accelerated graduate degree in audiology, orientation and mobility or vision rehabilitation, your bachelor's degree should include the appropriate concentration - either audiology or blindness and low vision. Taking a concentration does not guarantee admission into the graduate program.

Most students apply to accelerated graduate programs during their junior year. Each accelerated program has courses that simultaneously count toward the undergraduate and graduate degrees. More information about accelerated programs is linked below.
