This certificate allows students with a bachelor’s degree in a field other than speech, language, hearing sciences (SLHS) to demonstrate completion of a specific sequence of foundational courses required by most graduate programs in speech-language pathology and audiology. 

MSU Denver prerequisites to SLHS 2100, SLHS 2530, and SLHS 3530 will be waived for certificate-seeking students. However, students who lack background in algebra, general biology, and/or English grammar should consider taking recommended prerequisites.

SLHS leveling courses must be taken in a prescribed sequence. Students should contact an SLHS program advisor to obtain a transcript evaluation and more information about registration procedures.  Visit the department webpage to schedule an appointment with an SLHS advisor:

Students must earn a C or better in all required courses to apply towards the SLHS Leveling Certificate.
