Call for Public Comment on Applicants for CAA Accreditation

Updated May 13, 2015

Spring 2015 Site Visits | Fall 2015 Site Visits

In accordance with the Council on Academic Accreditation's (CAA) Public Comment policy and procedures (Accreditation Handbook, Chapter XII, "Informing the Public"), the CAA is seeking public comment as part of its review of the clinical doctoral programs in audiology or master's programs in speech-language pathology that have submitted Applications for Candidacy or Applications for Initial or Continued Accreditation for review by the CAA.

Instructions for Submitting Comments

Individuals who wish to provide input about a program seeking candidacy (preaccreditation) or initial accreditation by the CAA or about a CAA-accredited program seeking continued accreditation may do so in two ways, by:

  • submitting written comments prior to the accreditation site visit in accordance with the procedures specified in the Public Comment procedures, or
  • providing comments to the site visit team during the program's scheduled site visit.

All comments must

Comments that do not meet the requirements as articulated in the Public Comment will not be considered, and the individual or group commenting will be so notified.

The Standards [PDF] and the CAA's Public Comment policy and procedures are available on the ASHA website—see Chapter XII "Informing the Public" in the Accreditation Handbook. These documents also may be obtained by sending a written request to the Accreditation Office at ASHA, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, by calling ASHA's Action Center at 800-498-2071, or by sending an e-mail to accreditation@asha.org.
