100% Pass Rate Trend Continues for Speech Language Pathology Graduates

Published December 06, 2018

Nazareth College speech language pathology (SLP) master's students have continued the grad program's stellar record as all 48 of this year's graduates — in spring, summer, and fall 2018 graduating classes — passed the Praxis exam in speech-language pathology.  This exam is required for certification/licensure and is taken in the final semester of the graduate program. This is the third year in a row of 100% pass rates.
“The national average is 80%, making Nazareth’s 100% rate quite impressive,” said Dawn Vogler-Elias, the speech-language pathology graduate program director. “Please join me in congratulating our fall grads for their dedication, hard work, and determination throughout the program. We are all very proud of you!”
It’s also the third year in a row of 100% employment rate for SLP master’s grads. See Student Outcome Data
