Admission

Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

Major Adviser: E. W. Testut, Ph.D., Chair of Graduate Programs, testut@ithaca.edu

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Council on Academic Accreditation accredits the graduate programs in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. The department offers two major areas of study.
Speech-language pathology --- this program prepares students to meet:

    · Academic and clinical requirements for the ASHA certificate of clinical competence in speech-language pathology (CCC-SLP).
    · Eligibility requirements for the clinical fellowship and praxis examination. Successful completion of these is required for the ASHA CCC-SLP.
    · New York State licensure requirements.

Teacher of speech and hearing handicapped (TSHH) --- this program prepares students to meet:

    · Academic and clinical requirements for the New York State permanent teaching certificate.
    · Academic and clinical requirements for the ASHA certificate of clinical competence in speech-language pathology (CCC-SLP).
    · Eligibility requirements for the clinical fellowship and praxis examination. Successful completion of these is required for the ASHA CCC-SLP.
    · New York State licensure requirements.

The programs are designed for full-time study, beginning in the fall of each year. Students entering without deficiency typically complete the program in approximately 16 months. However, the amount of time required to complete the degree programs depends on the student's clinical and academic background at time of admission.

Admission

For both programs, consideration for admission requires:

    · an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution and
    · a minimum undergraduate grade-point average of 3.0 (on a four-point grading system)

In addition, applicants to the TSHH program must meet one of the following three considerations upon matriculation:

    · successful completion of New York State requirements for initial teaching certificate
    · certificate of eligibility for New York State initial teaching certificate
    · add New York State teaching certificate requirements to the graduate program, with the understanding that additional time may be required to complete the degree

Application for Admission

Submit all application materials to the Division of Graduate Studies by February 1 for fall admission. These must include:

    · Application fee
    · All official transcripts
    · GRE scores
    · Two letters of recommendation

Applicants whose baccalaureate major was not in speech-language pathology may apply for admission. However, if admitted, the graduate admissions committee will evaluate their undergraduate work to determine coursework to be completed prior to matriculation.

Graduate Assistantships

Students applying for graduate admission may apply for a graduate assistantship as well. The department awards assistantships each year based on scholarship and taxable salary. Students awarded graduate assistantships fulfill duties in the department as assigned. The application for assistantship deadline is February 1.
