CSD Students in the news
Admissions cycle for Class of 2021-22 extended to Jan 20.
For individuals applying to the Summers Track program: It is understood that the COVID pandemic may have affected the ability to find employment and/or maintain 20 hours per week as an SLPA. When reviewing 2020-2021 applications, the Admissions Committee will only consider whether a prospective student will be able to work as an SLPA if admitted.
Due to the COVID pandemic and the inability of ETS to provide testing, GRE scores will NOT be required of 2021-22 applicants.
Summer 2021 classes will be delivered via NAUFlex, in which students choose to either attend class in person in Flagstaff OR remain at home and receive coursework via remote synchronous delivery. Students not physically present in the classroom will join the class live via Zoom or Collaborate Ultra—technology that will be readily available to them.
Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northern Arizona University
The Communication Sciences and Disorders department at NAU provides classroom and clinical practicum experiences in a variety of ways through:
- our master’s degree in Clinical Speech-Language Pathology,
- our undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences & Disorders,
- a plan that advances students toward applying for licensure as a speech-language pathology assistant, and
- our fully-operational clinic.
We invite you to explore all of the options and links below.
Master of Science in Clinical Speech-Language Pathology
If you are looking for a high-caliber master’s degree program in clinical speech-language pathology that places a premium on the communicative and learning needs of culturally and linguistically diverse populations through comprehensive course work and clinical practicum experiences, you are in the right place!
We have four master’s level tracks available: Full-Time Track, Full-Time Leveler Track, Summers Track, and an Accelerated BS to MS Track . These are NOT online programs. However, the Summers Track does include 8-11 credit hours of online courses, as well as 19 credit hours of clinical experiences available in areas outside of Flagstaff, during fall and spring semesters.

Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences & Disorders
Our department is excited to announce that the undergraduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology is transitioning from a BIS in Speech Sciences and Technology to a BS in Communication Sciences & Disorders, effective Spring 2019. Students currently obtaining a BIS will have the option of completing the degree or applying all obtained credits towards the more streamlined BS. Interested students should contact their academic advisors to obtain an updated curriculum progression plan.
The BS in CSD will provide students with the prerequisite knowledge required for graduate study in the field. As a student, you will have the opportunity to obtain foundational knowledge related to speech, hearing, and language processes through both online and on-campus programs.

Speech-Language Pathologist Assistant (SLPA) Certificate
If you are interested in becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist Assistant (SLPA) and working as support personnel to a speech-language pathologist, this program may be right for you. Given busy lifestyles, many prefer the flexibility of choosing online courses.
The SLPA certificate meets the technical credit-hours requirement for the State of Arizona, as well as the recommendations of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. For more information about the SLPA program, click here.
The S-L-H clinic offers you a full range of speech, language, and hearing services, which include voice evaluation and treatment, cognitive retraining, audiological evaluation and hearing aid dispensing. For more information about our clinic or to make an appointment click here.
