Academic Advising Contacts

Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology

Advising is essential to successfully completing your degree program and educational goals. It is the responsibility of students to seek contact with their advisor to stay on track with their courses in order to graduate on time. If you are in need of academic advising, please reach out to the appropriate advisor as listed below, and include your NSHE ID if possible. Transfer students are especially encouraged to seek advising prior to matriculation to the University of Nevada, Reno to ensure a smooth transition and timely graduation. 

Advisor availability can be limited in the week immediately proceeding, and throughout registration periods in the Fall and Spring semesters. Planning to meet with your advisor earlier in the semester can ease this crunch for everyone.

Undergraduate Students in their Sophmore year or beyond and Transfer Students:


Nikki Murphy, M.S., CCC-SLP

Students with Graduate Special or Second Degree Standing


Rachael Walden, M.S., CCC-SLP

Graduate Students

Students admitted to the graduate program will be assigned an advisor at Orientation. Inquiries regarding graduate study should be directed to Dr. Debra Vigil
