Colorado Speech and Language Therapy License

Requests for SLP licensure must be submitted to the Colorado Office of Speech-Language Pathology Certification. Licenses are usually issued within two to three weeks of receipt of completed applications. Colorado is a popular destination for SLPs because of above-average pay. Although the cost of living is higher than the national average, mostly due to housing costs, it's possible to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses with a travel SLP job that includes a housing allowance.


No matter where you're based in Colorado, there's plenty of inspiration to be found. Explore geological wonders, relax in natural hot springs, bike down mountain trails or soak up the vibrant energy of cities like Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs.
