CAA Modifies Annual Report Submission Time Lines

Implementation Date: May 1, 2009

The Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) has revised the expected timing for annual report submissions by programs. Effective May 1, 2009, Annual Reports now will be submitted to the CAA in either February or August, based on the program's accreditation anniversary date.

This change is being made to align the online submission of accreditation reports (annual reports and accreditation applications) through the HES and is in response to feedback received from the academic program community.

The change in reporting time lines and its effective date:

  • streamline the submission activities within the Higher Education Data System (HES), including common academic year data sets;
  • support the CAA's launch of the Annual Report module through the HES, anticipated August 1, 2009; and
  • make consistent the CAA report due dates for programs.

A program's anniversary date will determine when reports will be due, as outlined below. CAA's current submission expectations for Applications for (Re)Accreditation were similarly modified in 2002 and follow the same assigned due dates as Annual Reports. 

Due Date for programs with anniversary dates in the months of:
February 1 August 1
November May
December June
January July
February August
March September
April October

Please note: As this reporting realignment does not go into effect until May 1, 2009, all programs due to submit an annual report through April 2009 should continue to file its annual report on its regular due date using current procedures.

Questions should be directed to the Accreditation Office at accreditation@asha.org.
