SLP Program Accreditation and Student Outcome Data

Accreditation and Outcome Data

We offer a clinically focused Master of Science degree program, providing basic training for all practice settings (e.g., schools, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics). We are accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Our graduates meet the academic and practicum requirements to apply for (a) the Certificate of Clinical Competence awarded by ASHA, (b) a license to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and other states, and (c) certification through the Pennsylvania Department of Education to provide speech-language pathology services in the schools.

We continually strive for excellence in preparing students for careers in speech-language pathology. To do this, we review our Speech-Language Pathology Program’s Long-Term Strategic Plan annually, including our Vision and Mission statements (see tab above).

The Master of Science (MS) education program in speech-language pathology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.
