Progress Sheet and Four-Year Academic Plan
Visit the Waldron College Advising Center website for the latest Progress Sheets and Four-Year Academic Plans for the Communication Sciences and Disorders program. Attempt to structure your course schedules as indicated in the four-year academic plan, found on the second page of the Progress Sheet. There is flexibility within the course sequencing of the core curriculum requirements. Students should, however, always consult with their academic advisor before making changes to their planned schedule.

It is highly recommended that COSD majors take ASL 221 as an elective course. However, enrollment for this course is prioritized for students enrolled in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing program. If you are interested in taking ASL 221, you MUST complete this form in order to ensure your name is on the waitlist. Otherwise, you will not be considered for enrollment in this course.
