Entering Freshman are encouraged to declare major as "Communication Disorders - Seeking Admission" (then under "Choose a group" select "None" or "On Campus") for faculty advisement on appropriate courses. Students will be assigned an ACE advisor until formally admitted to the major. Formal admission is made in the second semester of the sophomore year.
