Speech Language Pathologist Prerequisites Program – SLPP ONLINE
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2013-2014 SLPP cohort. We will begin accepting SLPP applications for the 2014 cohort in June 2013.
The University of Colorado at Boulder has developed a series of distance coursework to be offered through CU Continuing Education to prepare individuals, who have a BA/BS degree, to complete prerequisites necessary to apply to:
The initiative is the result of collaboration among the Colorado Consortium (speech, language & hearing sciences programs at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Northern Colorado, and Metropolitan State College of Denver), the Colorado Department of Education and the BOCES Association of Colorado. This initiative provides a path to address the continuing shortage of qualified personnel to work with students with communication, language, and learning challenges in our public schools. Preference is given to qualified candidates from rural or high needs areas in Colorado.
Coursework involves 24 credits of prerequisite coursework to be completed in 4 semesters (2 courses each semester). These courses are necessary to apply for admission to an existing SLPA certification programs and/or MA level graduate programs in the state of Colorado.
Program Requirements: Applicants must have a BA/BS degree, a GPA of 2.8, and complete all application requirements.
A number of seats in each cohort will be reserved for those qualified individuals who are sponsored or funded by their BOCES or administrative unit and who comply with all deadlines.
