New Participant Appeal Form Now Available
A new Participant Appeal Form [PDF] is now available on the ASHA CE website. This is to be used by participants in those instances when the participant did not complete the ASHA CEU Participant form or did not follow your instructions to be awarded ASHA CEUs.
You should direct participants to this form if they need to submit a participant appeal.
- Participants complete this form and e-mail, fax, or mail it to the ASHA Continuing Education Board (CEB).
- Participants also must attach verification of course completion and explain the circumstances that prevented them from either completing the ASHA CEU Participant Form or following your instructions for earning ASHA CEUs.
- After the Participant Appeal Form is received, you will be contacted by your Provider Manager to verify the participant's attendance, successful completion of the course, and number of ASHA CEUs to be awarded. You will also be asked if you support the participant's appeal or if you disagree with the information submitted in the appeal.
The new Participant Appeal Form provides an easy-to-follow appeal submission process for participants and provides the CEB with all pertinent information needed from the participant to adjudicate the appeal. Submission of the appeal form is not a guarantee that the ASHA CEUs will be awarded. ASHA CEUs cannot be awarded retroactively. Appeals are adjudicated on a case by case basis, and the appeal circumstances as well as the participant's appeal history are taken into consideration.
The Continuing Education FAQs on the ASHA CE website provide more information about participant appeals including the appeal adjudication process, the Participant Appeal Form, and paying the ASHA CE Registry Fee.
We have developed some suggested language that you can use to emphasize the importance of following your instructions for requesting ASHA CEUs and submitting the ASHA CEU Participant form, if applicable. This language can be modified to fit your particular situation. By reminding participants about your course completion process and timelines, we hope to reduce the number of participant appeals.
