The Board will start accepting ASHA Assistant Certification in lieu of the North Carolina Jurisprudence exam and the North Carolina SLP-A administered exam. Additionally, we are still accepting passing scores on both exams if you don’t have the ASHA Assistant Certification.

Furthermore, Assistant Applicants still submit official transcripts as part of their application. Assistants are still required to be registered under a NC licensed supervisor to work in NC.
After you apply you are required to take the Jurisprudence exam (if you do not have an associates in SLP-Assisting) and the NC SLP-A administered exam. The Jurisprudence exam is administered by the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Once this exam is passed you are eligible to take the NC SLP-A exam, which costs $500. If you went to Fayetteville or Caldwell Technical Community College you should have already taken the NC SLP-A exam. After you have been registered, the assistant and their supervisor must fill out the SLP-Assistant Registration form below.APPLY NOW
This form should only be used if the SLP-Assistant has never been registered or if the SLP-Assistant is not currently registered under another licensed SLP. If the SLP-Assistant is adding an additional primary or secondary supervisor or is changing from one supervisor to another, you should complete the SLP-Assistant Supervision Change form below.Register Now
