Admission

Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology

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

The Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) 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.

Teaching Students with Speech and Language Disabilities (TSSLD) -- 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 21 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)

    Applicants whose baccalaureate degree is not in speech-language pathology are encouraged to apply. If they are admitted, their undergraduate work will be evaluated to determine what undergraduate courses, if any, they need to take before they can matriculate.

Application for Admission

Preference is given to those applicants submitting 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

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.
