Important Notice to Recent Graduates
Recent graduates with a Master's in speech-language pathology or a Doctorate in audiology are advised that national examination score reporting by ETS is now completely electronic.  Recent graduates that did not indicate the State of Maryland as a licensure body to receive electronic score reporting are advised to contact ETS immediately to take the necessary action required by ETS so that the Board can view an applicant's score reports.  Failure to address this may result in a delay in the issuance of a license to an applicant.

Important Notice for Active Duty Military
Recently Discharged Military Veterans & Spouses

Pursuant to the Veterans Full Employment Act of 2013, military veterans discharged within one (1) year of application for licensing or registration qualify for expedited processing of applications and review of equivalency requests for military training.  The Board will expedite review and processing of applications of any military schools or courses submitted as qualifying equivalents for required educational licensing/registration educational standards.  The Board extends these privileges to active duty military, including reservists called to active duty for training or deployment.  These provisions also fully apply to spouses of active duty and qualifying veterans.

To further comply with the letter and spirit of the Act, counseling assistance is available to qualifying veterans, active duty personnel, and spouses on application, licensing and credentialing issues.  The Board Executive Director, Mr. Christopher J. Kelter, M.P.A., serves as the Board liaison and counselor to any qualifying veteran, active duty service member, or dependant spouse who requires information, guidance or assistance on issues relating to licensing.  He may be reached via email at or by phone at 410-764-4723.

This Board is prepared to assist all qualified military veterans in any way possible to meet the Act’s provisions.  Should any Act provisions be further amended (or as further information becomes available) information will be posted on this website.
