PEAK Majors

PEAKS | PSE

The College of Idaho Cooperative Program in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is a collaborative effort with Idaho State University (ISU). Under ordinary circumstances, students will attend The College of Idaho for three years, and then enter the Idaho State University program for the subsequent two years. When students have successfully completed the Idaho State University program, they will receive an Idaho State University Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences & Disorders, Emphasis in Pre-Speech-Language Pathology or Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences & Disorders, Emphasis in Pre-Audiology, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree from The College of Idaho.

Entrance into the Idaho State University program is competitive. Idaho State University has offered up to three admission seats to College of Idaho students each year, but it is possible that more than five College of Idaho students will apply. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in all prerequisite courses. Due to the competitive nature of this program, students are strongly advised to pursue a complementary major or course of study along with the program prerequisites (though they will not need to complete it if they articulate into the ISU program).

During their course-work at The College of Idaho, students will be required to complete 93 credits, including PEAK minors in Math/Natural Science, Social Science/History, and Humanities/Fine Arts, in addition to all of the prerequisite courses for the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Program. The ISU professional program along with the prerequisite courses will count for the Professional Studies PEAK. Please note that ISU only accepts a maximum of 8 credits in religion; therefore, the Religion Minor is not a viable option to fulfill the Humanities/Fine Arts PEAK.
