To begin your career as a speech-language pathologist, a master's degree and clinical certification by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) are required. Our speech-language pathology (SLP) online prerequisite courses are offered every semester, allowing you to complete the prerequisites required for admission to a graduate program in communication sciences and disorders.
If you are pursuing a speech-language pathologist assistant certification, we have the resources for you to succeed with our quality online coursework! Our speech-language pathology assistant (SLPA) pathway can be completed in as few as three semesters, finishing with the SLPA course offered each spring. This would prepare you for the SLPA exam and allow you to enter the field as an SLPA.
