Post-Baccalaureate Program (SLEP)

The NSC School of Education is proud to offer the Post-Baccalaureate Speech and Language Education Program (SLEP). This program provides an opportunity for students with a bachelors degree or higher to apply for the endorsement for speech and language impairment from the Nevada Department of Education or obtain the necessary academic requirements to apply to graduate programs in speech pathology and audiology. This endorsement is limited to the public school systems in the state of Nevada.

The Post-Baccalaureate Speech and Language Education Program does not lead to a degree. Students completing the program will need to apply for a license through the Nevada Department of Education. For more information on the licensure requirements visit the Nevada Department of Education website.
