For those individuals who have completed 3 or more of the prerequisite courses, you can take any remaining prerequisites as a non-matriculated student. See Non-Cohort Course Options for more information.

The SLP Preparation Program is an online full-time cohort program. In order to be eligible to participate in this program, students will be required to take a specific, sequence of courses continuously beginning in the Spring semester and ending in the Fall semster. See course descriptions for more details.

Students who apply and complete all of the SLP Prep Program courses will receive a University Speech-Language Pathology Preparation Certificate on their academic record.
