Our graduate program (Masters of Science) in Communication Sciences and Disorders is one of the degree programs under the College of Arts and Sciences of Oklahoma State University (OSU). The program is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Students in our graduate program receive strong academic foundations along with clinical training involving best-evidence practices. Specific to student outcomes, the rates for each of the domains including graduate program completion, employment rates, and Praxis scores, have averaged more than 95% during the past four years. The first year of graduate program includes academic coursework and clinical practicum within the OSU Speech-and-Hearing Clinic and other on-campus locations. The second year of graduate program includes 8 weeks of coursework followed by 8 weeks of clinical externship (off-campus) during both fall and spring semesters. Our first year graduate students are eligible to apply for Graduate Teaching Assistantships, Tuition Waivers, and a few other scholarships. Our past alumini and current students represent regions within Oklahoma as well as other states within the U.S. and sometimes other countries as well. We always welcome students from diverse backgrounds to apply to our graduate program. Please take a moment to browse through our website and contact us with any questions, thoughts or suggestions.

The Master of Science (M.S.) education program in speech-language pathology (residential) at Oklahoma State University has been placed on probation by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard, #310, Rockville, MD 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700. A program on probation is not currently in full compliance with the accreditation standards. Programs on probation remain accredited but must demonstrate compliance with the standards within one year.
Steps taken since receiving the decision letter:
*Our program was put under probation for missing the degree designation (M.S.) in the accreditation statement (indicating non-compliance with Standard 1.9). The decision letter was received on Monday (March 21st, 2022) and required changes were immediately made and shared with the CAA Accreditation Team on Monday (March 21st, 2022). The Accreditation Team confirmed on Friday (March 25th, 2022) that the changes made to the accreditation statement now follow the CAA standards. However, the end of probation report will be reviewed by CAA, and the earliest possible decision will be made during the next meeting on May 19th, 2022.
