International Applicants

International applicants practicing in countries included in the Agreement For The Mutual Recognition Of Professional Association Credentials (2008) (link:  http://www.asha.org/uploadedFiles/certification/CredRecognitionAgreement.pdf) will be considered for admission assuming they have met the equivalents of the applicant criteria.

The SLP-D admissions committee will consider international applicants practicing in countries other than those in the aforementioned agreement on a case-by-case basis.

Additional Information:

Applicants who earned or will earn their degrees outside of the U.S. must submit all transcripts to Educational Credential Evaluators (www.ece.org) or World Education Services (www.wes.org) for a course-by-course verification. Applications will not be reviewed without the degree verification.

The TOEFL is required for international applicants.

  • A minimum overall score of 100 is required with a minimum score of 26 on the “Speaking” section. Students with TOEFL scores below these standards will not be accepted. The test must have been administered no more than two years prior to the application date. The program does not accept the IELTS test.
  • The TOEFL may be waived for applicants who earned their bachelor’s or graduate degree from a university where English was the primary language of instruction.
