Partnership Program with Salus University, Osborne College of Audiology

Direct entry and a fast track to the audiology profession is available to USciences students through an arrangement with Osborne College of Audiology at Salus University (OCA).  Each year, up to 8 eligible USciences students are selected for reserved seats at the Elkins Park, Pennsylvania school, an innovator in developing audiologists.

Program Options

As a student in one of the following tracks, you’ll complete either three or four years at USciences before matriculating to OCA, earning both your bachelor of science (BS) and doctor of audiology (AuD) degrees.

3+4 BS/AuD Program

In this accelerated program, you must complete three years at USciences in any major (must include AuD prerequisite courses), followed by four years at OCA—earning both your BS and AuD degrees.

4+4 BS/AuD Program

As a student in the 4+4 program, you must complete four years at USciences in any major (must include AuD prerequisite courses) to receive your BS degree. Following successful completion of four years at OCA, you will then receive your AuD degree.
