The communication sciences and disorders certificate program is a two semester program designed to prepare students for entering into a graduate program in the field of speech-language pathology.
Students entering the certificate program already have a bachelor’s degree in a different field, but do not have the necessary undergraduate coursework to apply for a master’s degree program in speech-language pathology.
A variety of students participate in this program. These include:
Our certificate program will provide you with academic coursework necessary for applying to any speech-language pathology graduate program, including the M.A. program at SUNY Plattsburgh. Please see the speech-language pathology graduate program for more information.
Depending on your undergraduate coursework, you may need additional coursework required by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for professional certification. You and your academic advisor will work closely together to develop your curriculum.
Housing grants (up to $2,500 per year) are available for international and out-of-state students who are accepted into the certificate program. This grant only is provided for on-campus housing.
Note: Admission is limited to the 12 highest qualified students every fall. Deadline for application is April 1st.
