Accreditation
CAA recently received 10-year recognition—the maximum possible—from the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The recognition affirms that CAA standards and processes meet CHEA expectations for academic quality, accountability and improvement in higher education.
CAA is the ASHA entity that accredits master’s programs in speech-language pathology and clinical doctoral programs in audiology. CAA is the only accreditor of audiology and speech-language pathology programs that is recognized by both CHEA and the U.S. Secretary of Education for its work.
CAA helps academic programs ensure that their graduates are prepared, academically and clinically, to provide effective professional services to individuals as audiologists and speech-language pathologists. As of March 2014, 243 speech-language pathology master’s programs and 73 audiology clinical doctoral programs hold CAA accreditation. In addition, 15 speech-language pathology programs and one audiology program hold CAA candidacy status.
