Graduate Program General Information Graduate Program General Information


ENMU's CDIS Program provides advanced training in assessing and treating speech, language and swallowing disorders. Our CDIS graduate program offers a hybrid of traditional on-campus and online classes. Most students come to our campus for a 16 week fall or spring semester (usually their second full-time semester), but we do offer a limited number of 8-week summer options for eligible students.   Summer 501/508 placements are sometimes competitive and are students required to interview with supervisors in order to be selected.  These placements cannot be guaranteed with admission.

If you meet all first semester practicum and evaluation competencies, you may complete the remainder of your courses and practicum off campus as long as you continue to attain competencies in future practicums.  Please note practicum site availability in chosen areas may be limited in some geographic locales, and students may need to relocate in some cases. Distance education coursework requires synchronous enrollment, meaning that students must "attend" all courses remotely during the time the course is being taught on campus. Our program is also unique in that you can transition between full-time and part-time status at any time during the program.

Graduate school is an intense experience. For every hour you spend in class, you'll need an additional three hours outside of class for study. We recognize you may need to be employed, and we are willing to work with you. Unfortunately, you will not be able to work full-time and attend the CDIS graduate program. Part-time enrollment may be compatible with part-time employment for some students.
