Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology Program Granted Accreditation Candidacy

University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) has received notice that the new Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology program (MSSLP) has been granted Accreditation Candidacy status from the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. This is a “pre-accreditation” status with the CAA.

“This provisional status is awarded to developing or emerging programs for a five-year period and allows USAHS to continue evolving the MSSLP program while enrolling students with confidence that the university will work diligently to document ongoing compliance with standards and achieve full accreditation,” said Speech-Language Pathology program director Dr. Kathy Wheat.

“Adding the MSSLP program to our degree offerings is an important part of increasing the interprofessional nature of our programs and becoming the leading comprehensive health sciences university,” said Dr. Divina Grossman, USAHS president. “This achievement was made possible by the extraordinary leadership of speech-language pathology faculty and accreditation team, and we congratulate all of those involved.”

The program launches this fall in Austin and is currently accepting applications. Visit the MSSLP page for more information.
