Graduate Admission

CSDCAS Information

Basic Information

If applying for our Communication Disorders program, please apply through the CSDCAS online application. You can view additional information about the CSDCAS process.

Once we receive all your credentials from CSDCAS, your application will be sent to the admission committee.

CSDCAS Delays & Deadlines

When you apply via the CSDCAS application, there may be a delay in processing your application here at Emerson as we wait for your CSDCAS application to reach Verified status before we enter it into our system. During the busiest times of the year, this may take a few weeks.

However, as long as you submit your application to CSDCAS prior to the application deadline, it will be considered in good standing. We understand it may take some time for CSDCAS to continue the processing on their end.

Once we receive your verified CSDCAS application, you will receive an email that confirms the receipt of your application and invites you to set up an account in the Emerson College Application Portal.

Additional Application Materials

CSDCAS requires both transcripts and test scores. Please send Emerson your test scores also. We do not need your transcripts. Once you are accepted into the Communication Disorders program, we will need a copy of your official transcripts.


There is no separate application for fellowships. Applicants are considered for fellowships at the time of application review.

Admission Decisions

You will not hear about the admission committee’s decision through CSDCAS. You will receive a letter and additional information through the Emerson College Application Portal.
