Information for the Fall 2023 Cohort
For the cohort beginning in Fall 2023, we are not charging a program application fee and are waiving our traditional requirement for an external ASL evaluation, saving applicants $140. Courses are taught at the Meridian campus. An on-site orientation is planned for all students to meet in Meridian, during August; final program internship locations will be discussed with the internship coordinator.
