Current NYU Students
If you are currently an NYU student interested in declaring Communicative Sciences and Disorders as your major, we strongly recommend that you take CSCD-UE 101: The Talking Brain: Typical and Disordered Communication prior to changing majors. We also recommend that students have a 2.5 GPA or better prior to declaring the CSD major.
