Lake Region State College

an Associate in Applied Science Degree in

Speech Language Pathology Assistant. The

degree program is offered online through

a collaborative effort of Lake Region

State College, Williston State College, and

Minot State University. The online, two-

year program provides students with an

opportunity to complete the degree at home

while continuing their current employment

status.

A Speech Language Pathology Assistant

(SLPA) works under the direct control

of a Speech Language Pathologist. This

degree allows the assistant to provide

the following services: screen without

interpretation following specified protocols;

perform established tasks; document

student progress; prepare materials; create

scheduling; and maintain equipment. This

career choice is for people who possess

good communication skills, are patient, can

follow directions, have good observation

skills, and like working with children in a

school setting.

This program follows the certification

requirements of the North Dakota

Department of Public Instruction and

requires 63 credits. The American Speech-

Language Hearing Association (ASHA) is not

currently accrediting or certifying programs;

however, the program is based on ASHA

guidelines to be in line for accreditation

should ASHA resume accrediting programs.

Applications for the SLPA program are

reviewed once each year in November. A

limited number is admitted into the program

each spring.

Prospective students must complete all

requirements for admission to the SLPA

program as outlined in the SLPA packet,

available from the Student Affairs office.

Requirements include:

Application letter

Two letters of reference

Transcript(s) for courses completed

(in progress) to meet the following
