Speech-Language Pathology Online

These online courses are the prerequisites you’ll likely need to apply to a graduate program in Communication Sciences and Disorders. We offer each of the nine available prerequisites during the fall, spring and summer semesters, plus a tenth course (Introduction to Clinical Practice) which is offered during the summer only.

Longwood University’s bachelor’s and master’s programs (offered on-campus) are accredited by ASHA, and these courses fall under that accreditation.


If you plan to take one of the following courses offered as part of the SLPOnline coursework, you must have completed the required prerequisites listed below.

PCSD 313 (Anatomy and Physiology of the Speech and Hearing Mechanism) – Prerequisite BIOL 101 or equivalent
PCSD 314 (Phonology and Language Disorders) – Prerequisites PCSD 285 and 307
PCSD 361 (Audiology) – Prerequisite PCSD 313
PCSD 450 (Speech Science) – Prerequisites PCSD 307, 313 and 361
PCSD 455 (Neurology for Human Communication) – Prerequisite PCSD 313
If the prerequisites were taken at Longwood, you will not need to submit proof of having the prerequisite.

If the prerequisites were NOT taken at Longwood, you will need to submit a transcript (unofficial or official) from the college where you took the prerequisite course for evaluation.
