The Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology degree program is approved by the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). WICHE’s 15-state region includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Under this approval, students from the other 14 states can attend UNC at the Colorado resident graduate tuition rate rather than the non-resident rate. Learn how to become eligible for WRGP at UNC.
University financial aid includes scholarships, student loans, work-study, and other programs. To be eligible for these university-wide programs, it is necessary for you to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1. Financial statements submitted after March 1 will be processed but will receive a lower priority and funding will be subject to funds available.
Scholarships are made possible through donations from private donors and alumni. Access to the Universal Scholarship Application, available through Ursa, is open each year from January 1 through March 1.
In addition to participation in the Western Regional Graduate Program, the UNC Graduate School offers graduate assistantships and tuition assistance programs to help fund your education. Application for graduate assistantships is made directly to the Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences Program via the Application for Program Awarded Financial Assistance.
