Accreditation Handbook—Chapter XII: Informing the Public
The CAA logo is the exclusive property of the Council on Academic Accreditation. However, the CAA allows accredited programs and their sponsoring institutions to use the CAA logo in publications and displays—electronic or print.
Guidelines For Use
- The logo must be used in its entirety and not modified
- Exception: It may be reduced or enlarged, but the scale of elements should be retained
- The logo may be reproduced in black and white
- The logo may not be used by programs that have applied for, but have not yet received accreditation or candidacy status
- If programs that are not accredited by the CAA are included in the publication and/or display, then accompanying text must be included that clearly specify which programs are CAA accredited or candidates for accreditation
- Example: The logo does not apply to undergraduate or non-entry level doctoral programs in communication sciences and disorders
- Logo use shall be subject at all times to revocation and withdrawal by the CAA when, in its sole judgment, its continued use would not serve the best interests of CAA or the public
CAA encourages each accredited and candidate academic program to use the approved format of the logo to publicly promote their CAA accreditation status. Separate logos have been developed for accredited and candidate programs in each professional area.
