Steps to Becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist in Oregon

    1. High school graduation is the first step toward becoming a licensed speech and language pathologist in the state of Oregon. While no specified courses are required, a college preparatory track is your best bet.

  1. Receive your Bachelor's degree. It is recommended to get your degree in a field related to speech and language or communication disorders, since it will be easier to enroll in graduate study with a Bachelor's program like this.
  2. Enroll in one of the online or campus based Oregon speech pathology graduate programs accredited by the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA). You will need, at minimum, a Master's degree to become licensed in Oregon. Instructions will also be given to you during your graduate program on obtaining your Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the ASHA. Have graduate school transcripts sent directly to the Board from your school. If you have transcripts sealed and unopened in a university envelope, you may send them to the Board yourself.
  3. If you have your CCC from the ASHA, have the ASHA send verification of such directly to the Board.
  4. If you do not have your CCC, you will need to take the NTE Praxis exam for SLP and have your scores sent directly from Educational Testing Service (ETS) to the Board. You must receive at least a score of 600 on this exam.
  5. If you do not have your CCC, and your school was not ASHA-accredited at the time of your graduation, you must also provide proof of completion of  275 Clinical Clock Hours, and proof of completion of  9 months of supervised experience. (If you already have your CCC, you will have already completed steps 5 & 6).
  6. Show proof of at least 30 hours of professional development within the last 24 months.
  7. Send in a completed application (form can be found at www.bspa.state.or.us/BSPA/pdfs/SLP_Audiologist_License_Application.pdf) along with an application fee of $200 and a licensing fee of $275, for a total of $475, to:

    Oregon Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology
    800 NE Oregon Street
    Suite 407
    Portland OR 97232
     (971) 673-0220 
  8. Licenses must be renewed every other year.
