The CAA’s decisions of the accreditation status of graduate education programs in audiology and speech-language pathology are based on compliance with current standards—addressing administrative structure and governance, faculty, academic and clinical curriculum, students, assessment, and program resources. The CAA’s accreditation is sought voluntarily by education programs that offer clinical doctoral degrees in audiology or master’s degrees in speech-language pathology designed for graduates entering the professions. The CAA applies accreditation status classifications to each program that reflect CAA’s evaluation of the extent to which an education program complies with the Standards for Accreditation.
The CAA provides public notice of final accreditation decisions in accordance with its Policy on Public Notice of Accreditation Actions.
The complete list of CAA-Accredited Graduate Education Programs [PDF] is updated regularly to reflect recent actions and accreditation statuses.
The CAA held its most recent decision-making meeting on July 21–24, 2021.
