M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology- Student Outcome Data

ASHA-CAA requires that we report outcome data on our graduates (see Table 2). Each year, we typically accept 18 students into our residential graduate program and 6 students into our distance program. Most students complete the program within the designated schedule of 2 years for campus students and 3.5 for distance students. Our pass rate on the Praxis is consistently 100%. Graduates gain employment as speech-language pathologists with no difficulty. About half stay in Wyoming and half take jobs out of the state. Most are employed in the schools.

Note: Employment rates lower than 100% are invariably due to the individual’s choice to stay out of the workforce for personal reasons such as childcare or travel, rather than inability to obtain employment in the profession.
