Wyoming Speech-Language Pathologist License Reciprocity Process

Wyoming engages in state-to-state license reciprocity, which necessitates an “equal exchange.” Thus, an individual’s qualifications to acquire their out-of-state license must be commensurate with Wyoming’s requirements.

To be considered under reciprocity in Wyoming, the applicant must show evidence of a valid license to practice speech-language pathology or audiology in a state where the standards set by the board are equivalent or higher to those required for licensure in Wyoming.

Individuals licensed in states with comparable standards may be exempt from the exam and receive licensure. If a professional is recognized by a nationally recognized speech and hearing association as clinically competent, the Wyoming Board of Examiners of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology may waive the exam and issue a license.


One benefit of this career is the availability of support and direction. ASHA, or the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, provides a state advocacy team that remains informed on all pertinent topics and furnishes aid and materials to its members.

Those who hold a license from another state with comparable requirements or have ASHA CCCs certification will be assumed to have fulfilled the education, clinical experience, and exam prerequisites for Michigan.

Applying for the CCC-SLP

Once you have completed the required coursework and clinical practicum as a graduate student, and your program director confirms that you have fulfilled the Standards I-V requirements, you are eligible to submit your online application. This is valid if Council on Academic Accreditation in Speech-Language Pathology is involved with accrediting a program you have completed.

Additional Required Documents

In order to finish your online certification application, you have to turn in these papers.

  • Praxis exam scores, demonstrating passing grades (sent from ETS to ASHA).
  • The graduate transcript verifies the degree awarded and the date (it may arrive from the institution).
  • It is necessary to submit the Report and Rating Form for the Speech-Language Pathology Clinical Fellowship (SLPCF) through the online application portal.
  • Disclosure documents: If you answered affirmatively to any disclosure query on the application, please check the criteria for certified copies of legal or court papers.

The cost for ASHA Membership and Certification is $511.

Audiology & Speech-Language Pathology Interstate Compact (ASLP-IC)

The Wyoming Board of Examiners of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology of the ASLP-IC. Through this compact, practitioners from these states can now request a “privilege” to practice in other participating states through in-person or telehealth methods. By virtue of the ASLP-IC agreement, states that partake therein can offer speech-language pathology services across state borders while upholding public safety standards.

Compact privilege is used when a remote state grants permission for a licensed audiologist or speech-language pathologist from another state to practice within its borders under its laws and regulations. The location of the client, patient, or student determines where the patient encounters occur, and the Speech-language pathologist’s licensed home state is their primary residence.

Compact Privilege

The ASLP-IC facilitates the interstate practice of speech-language pathology while ensuring public safety. Here is some Compact Privilege:

  • Audiologists and SLPs need a license in their home state and apply for ASLP-IC practice privileges without forum shopping.
  • Active military personnel or their spouse can designate a home state with a current and valid license. The designation can be retained during the active duty period.
  • Practice privilege renewal is in sync with the home state license, and continuing education is based on the home state license unless it is related to the scope of practice.
  • States must allow telehealth practice for privilege holders.
