  1. Can anyone tell me about their process of becoming an SLP in California school settings after graduating out of state? I have always heard that it is tough to transfer licenses from out of state to California. From what I can tell there are some administrative hoops to go through, but not really like additional classes or exams to take, or licenses to obtain, or anything too bad? (I'm referencing this page: https://govt.westlaw.com/calregs/Document/IA25B1CF0A35611E0B58A968807045B20?viewType=FullText&originationContext=documenttoc&transitionType=CategoryPageItem&contextData=(sc.Default)&bhcp=1 ) I would just really appreciate it if someone could tell me about their experience as an SLP coming from another state to schools in CA. Did you have to do a ton of extra work? If I definitely want to work in California after graduating, would you recommend just graduating from a school in California?
  2. Hey everyone! Long time scowler of these forums but first time poster! I'm looking for some opinions/insight concerning my decision for a graduate program starting in the fall. I attended Sacred Heart University for my undergrad and graduated Summa Cum Laude with my b.s. in psychology. After many applications and acceptances/denials I had finally made the decision to attended Adelphi University for their mental health counseling masters program. However, just two weeks ago I heard back from Teachers College at Columbia University and was accepted to the Psychology in Education (general psych) masters in the clinical department. So here lies my dilemma...I am so drawn to the name on the diploma when it comes to Columbia but I know that the program will not end in licensure. I would be open to attending a PhD program to become a licensed psychologist after Columbia but I would hope to gain acceptance to a fully funded program which I know is extremely difficult. My end goal is to become a practicioner whether that be as a licensed psychologist or licensed mental health counselor. However I'm also aware that as a mental health counselor I will be making significantly less money than if I had a PhD. So my questions are 1) does anyone have opinions on the TC program? I've heard the professors don't pay much attention to the masters students which concerns me. 2) if I get my psychology in education (general psychology) masters from TC at Columbia what are my chances of gaining acceptance to a PhD program? Specifically a fully funded program. 3) should I be more concerned with the name on the degree or the licensure that will be granted after the 2 year Adelphi program? And 4) if I attended Columbia and got the General masters and then decided not to pursue a PhD what could I do as far as career options with just the masters? All opinions are welcome, especially if you have personal experience or knowledge of either program! I need to make a final decision by July 1st so please contribute. Thank you!!
  3. I'm about to finish my bachelors in speech and hearing science (concentration in slp) at the University of Illinois. I decided to take a gap year instead of going straight to grad school for slp and wanted to get licensed to be an SLPA so i could work as one during my gap year. I just read somewhere that in Illinois you can only get certified as an SLPA if you complete an associates degree program with the certification. That makes no sense to me. If I have a bachelor's degree, I feel like I should be able to obtain certification and work as an assistant. Does anyone have any knowledge on this situation? Help me!
  4. Hello! I am curious to see if there are any recent graduates finding themselves in the same boat as me. I JUST finished everything I need to become an SLP (Praxis passed, last clinical rotation completed, clockhours accumulated, etc etc) and am waiting for my university to post my transcripts so that I can apply for temporary licensure in the state of California. HOWEVER, my university will not be posting my transcripts until JUNE and the California state board of licensing for SLPs warns that processing times after receiving transcripts can be around 6-8 weeks. That means that I am currently unemployable as an SLP and look to be for about the next FIVE MONTHS! I do have a great-paying job lined up for August working as a licensed SLP. But that is five months away and I have no money and no license in the meantime. Is any one else experiencing this lag time for processing? Has anyone? Does anyone have any recommendations? I am currently looking to work the next 5 months for minimum wage as a barista or look at if it is even possible to get a SLPA license in the meantime and do that work.. I don't even know if that's available to me. I'm just curious as to HOW I can avoid working a minimum wage job in the licensing interim after doing all that work to earn a high paid job. Sorry- does this sound whiny? ANYWAY, let me know if anyone is experiencing anything similar! Or if you have any advice! Thank you so much!!! Ingrid
