Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Communications

The Communicative Disorders program is fully accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Graduate study in this program leads to certification in speech-language pathology with ASHA (CCC-SLP).

The CCC-SLP is awarded by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association to persons who: (a) complete the M.A. Degree in speech-language pathology; (b) complete the required clinical practicum by taking prescribed combinations of clinical practicum courses; (c) achieve all required knowledge-based and skill-based competencies; (d) pass the National Examination in Speech-Language Pathology; (e) successfully complete a Clinical Fellowship Year; and (f ) submit the appropriate application materials to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. All students should be familiar with the requirements for the CCC-SLP. All students should obtain a copy of the latest ASHA Membership and Certification Handbook during the last year of their graduate studies, and they should read all materials carefully. Their advisers are not responsible for informing students of ASHA requirements that are to be met after graduation. Copies of the Handbook are available from the Graduate Assistant in the CSUF Speech and Hearing Clinic or directly from ASHA at the following address and telephone number:
