Are you interested in graduate school, but you did not get your undergraduate degree in speech-language pathology? We are here to help! We offer post-baccalaureate courses for you to obtain the credits you need in order to apply for graduate school. We offer 13 different undergraduate courses in an online learning format to post-baccalaureate students (see post-baccalaureate sequence information below). If you are considering these courses, make sure to check the admission requirements for your graduate program of choice and don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.
Wisconsin is a SARA state (State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement) and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is a SARA-approved institution.
"The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. It is intended to make it easier for students to take online courses offered by postsecondary institutions based in another state." (See link to NC-SARA below) *Although CA and MA are not SARA-approved states at this time, UW-Eau Claire may currently accept students from these states as well.*
Important Notice to Students: If you are considering an online academic program that leads to a professional license, it is highly recommended you contact the appropriate licensing agency in the state where you plan to apply for your license before beginning your academic program. SARA does not provide reciprocity for state professional licensing requirements. Academic programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by that state’s licensure requirements in order for a graduate to be eligible for a license.
The SARA provision for this requirement can be found on pg. 27 of the SARA Manual (Version 16.3) in the additional resources below.
The Communication Sciences & Disorders graduate program at UW‐Eau Claire prepares students for licensure in the state of Wisconsin. Students are responsible for obtaining information about licensure in any other state.
