Speech-Language Pathology Assistant Program
If you are interested in working with children or adults who are experiencing communication delays and disorders, then this field of study is for you. Speech-language pathology assistants are prepared to work with a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist. The number of individuals who qualify for speech-language services continues to grow while there is a shortage of speech-language providers, especially in rural areas. This leads to great job opportunities for our OCCC SLPA program graduates.
You must apply and be accepted for admission to OCCC and the Speech-Language Pathology Assistant Program. Applications are accepted for fall entry only for the program.
Application will open in February 2022
Deadline: 1st Friday in June at Noon
Special application procedures must be followed by those planning to pursue admission in to this program. More information about health program applications.
