We offer programs of study in  speech, language, and hearing sciences.  This includes clinical education in speech and language pathology and audiology.  There are also opportunities related to neuroscience and cognitive science.   As professionals and behavioral scientists, students study the receptive and productive aspects of normal and pathological communication.  Our clinical education programs in speech-language pathology and audiology lead to professional credentials including the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Colorado State Licensure, and Colorado Department of Education licensure to work in the public schools.. Both the Master’s program in speech-language pathology and the Doctorate of Audiology program are fully accredited by the Council of Academic Accreditation and the Colorado Department of Education.

Residency and Tuition Classification

Opportunities for In-state tuition for MA-SLP and AuD students

The MA-SLP and AuD programs at the University of Colorado at Boulder are in a new program that will allow in-state tuition if a student is a resident of one of 15 western states. Qualifying students are residents of Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming. Students who come from one of these states and are accepted into either the MA-SLP or AuD program are eligible for in-state tuition when they begin their studies.  Information about this program – Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP) can be found at

Students should check WICHE/WRGP on their application but they can also asked to be reclassified when they enter the program. For more information, contact Brenda Schick, Coordinator of Graduate Studies.

SLHS Graduate Clinical Program Fee

The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences has implemented a program fee in order to maintain the quality of the outstanding graduate clinical programs we offer.  Without these funds, the department would need to significantly reduce the number of students we can train.  It is important that the department produce the number of well trained audiologists and speech-language pathologists that we do because there is a shortage of these professionals in the state of Colorado and in the nation and SLHS is one of only two academic institutions in Colorado that have graduate clinical programs in these disciplines.

The program fee for students enrolled in the Doctorate of Audiology (AuD) program is $535 per semester they are enrolled in clinical practicum courses.  The program fee for students enrolled in the Master of Arts (M.A.) program is $1,255 per semester they are enrolled in clinical practicum courses.
