IUPlogo Salus University Osborne College of Audiology in Elkins Park, Pa, and Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) in Indiana, Pa, have announced an articulation agreement, creating a strategic alliance designed to enhance academic collaboration between the two universities.

The 3+4 Doctor of Audiology degree program articulation agreement will allow select undergraduate students who successfully complete the 90-semester hour, pre-audiology curriculum at IUP to apply for the four-year Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program at Salus.

Students admitted to Salus through the 3+4 agreement will receive their Bachelor of Science degree upon completion of their first year of coursework in the audiology program at Salus (and fulfillment of IUP’s requirements for graduation).

“We look forward to welcoming IUP students to Salus University’s Osborne College of Audiology. IUP is an excellent University that shares our commitment to the training of future practitioners in Audiology and we are proud to be working with them,” said Radhika Aravamudhan, PhD, interim dean of Salus University Osborne College of Audiology, in a press statement.

The Salus AuD degree will be conferred to students who successfully complete the four-year audiology program and meet all of the University’s requirements for graduation.

“The new 3+4 agreement with Salus University creates an excellent opportunity for IUP students in the pre-audiology program,” said Deanne Snavely, PhD, IUP Dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. “Students will learn from a strong group of excellent faculty at both universities and graduate with two high quality degrees prepared to become healthcare professionals in audiology.”
