The CAA offers an accreditation program for eligible clinical doctoral programs in audiology and master’s programs in speech-language pathology that prepare students for entry into the professions. The CAA publishes a directory of the graduate education programs in audiology and speech-language pathology that have undergone a comprehensive review by the CAA. In this review, the council evaluates the adequacy of a program’s efforts to demonstrate compliance with the Standards for Accreditation of Graduate Education Programs in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Compliance with all standards indicates that the program meets the expectations for the CAA for accreditation, regardless of mode of delivery. The CAA monitors all programs on an annual basis to ensure that compliance with the standards is maintained.
As of February 2021, current CAA-accredited and candidate programs are housed within 300 institutions of higher education in the United States.
