New Jersey Speech-Language Pathologist License Reciprocity Process

New Jersey is not a member of any interstate compacts or license reciprocity agreements. However, there’s an expedited licensing procedure for professionals who have a current license in another jurisdiction with similar licensing requirements.

For professionals who have a CCC and five years of experience, license application for applicants from other states. You’ll fill out this application form and send in the fees (same as other new licensees). Then, you’ll arrange for the following:

  • CCC verification from ASHA
  • Verification that your license is in good standing for each active license you’ve held for 5 years or more
  • Transcripts for college degree and SLP degree
  • Background check authorization
  • Continuing education documentation showing 10 hours per year of current license
  • Jurisprudence orientation
  • Two passport photos.

If you haven’t had a license for five years, you must go through the regular application process. Of course, you’ll still have your degree, clinical hours, and fellowship. It’ll just take longer to do the paperwork. Also, the Board will need to see your Praxis scores.

As you can see, New Jersey has lots of requirements to get an SLP license. However, the criteria are relatively straightforward, especially if you follow the directions in this guide. In the end, however, you’ll get a rewarding career helping people of all ages communicate by overcoming their language challenges.
