ANNOUNCEMENT RE:  4th Year Audiology Students

As of March 11, 2016, the N.C. Board of Examiners for Speech & Language Pathologists & Audiologists has interpreted 90-294(c)(2) to mean that fourth-year audiology students are not required to hold a temporary license during their fourth-year internship.  They would need to apply for a permanent license after their doctorate degree has been conferred if they plan to practice in the State of North Carolina. 

Fourth-year audiologists from out-of-state academic programs may need to be aware of their State’s SARA status as this may affect them financially.
