Will non-US degrees be accepted?

When applying to Hunter College's master of science degree in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, the criteria for admissions are the same no matter where you undertook undergraduate work. Through the Graduate Admissions Office, you will need to find out what courses and grades are the US equivalents. Native speakers of a language other than English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination.

I am speech-language pathologist in my native country and need courses to get a New York State license. How do I go about applying?

Unfortunately, at this time the Department does not have a mechanism which allows unlicensed speech-language pathologists to take courses which will enable them to apply for a New York State license or ASHA certification. Every applicant wishing to matriculate into the Department's curriculum must successfully fulfill the degree requirements before the Program Director can sign off on applications for NYS State License or ASHA certification.
