In this section, you must review and respond to the following release statements in order to submit your application. Once you submit your application, your responses can NOT be edited. It is your responsibility to read and understand these statements before you respond to them. Please review these instructions and the content of the statements carefully. If you have any questions regarding these statements, please contact customer service for clarification BEFORE making your selections.


This statement serves as a contractual agreement between you and CSDCAS. You are required to agree to these terms in order to submit your CSDCAS application. Part of these terms indicates that you agree to all of the CSDCAS Instructions and FAQ, so it is important that you have read and understand these instructions.


CSDCAS applicants are expected and required to abide by this code of conduct in order to be considered for entry into the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology. You are required to agree to this code in order to submit your CSDCAS application. Violating this code may subject you to sanctions by the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Science and Disorders (CAPCSD), up to and including being barred from applying to participating CSDCAS programs indefinitely.

Be certain to take this code and the consequences of violating it very seriously. Each application cycle, we do have applicants who violate the code and are sanctioned to varying degrees of severity by CAPCSD. Every CSD program you are applying to is aware of the code and may report applicants who they believe may be in violation.


Selecting “Yes” allows CSDCAS to release your name and contact information to CSDCAS  programs you have listed on your CSDCAS application BEFORE you submit your application to these schools. This information is restricted to name and contact information and does not include your application information. However, schools may use this information to reach out to you.

This is an optional release, and you may select no if you should choose. We encourage you to authorize this release, as it is useful to your designated programs as it allows them to send you important information about the local admissions process before you complete your application. However, it will not affect the consideration given to your application.
