Essential Functions

The SPHR Department at PSU endeavors to select applicants who have the ability to become highly competent SLP professionals. Admission and retention decisions are based not only on satisfactory prior and ongoing academic achievement, but also on clinical program requirements for graduation. Essential functions, as distinguished from academic standards, refer to those cognitive, physical, and behavioral abilities that are necessary for satisfactory mastery of the curriculum, and the professional attributes required of all students at graduation.
