Audiology Accreditation

Dual Accreditation

NSU’s Doctor of Audiology program is one of only six programs, of the 70+ audiology programs in the United States, with the distinction of being dually accredited. 

The doctoral (AuD) education program in audiology at Nova Southeastern University is dually accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Audiology Education (ACAE), 1718 M Street, NW # 297, Washington, DC 20036-4504, 202-986-9500 and the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850, 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700.

Students enrolled in a program that is accredited by CAA are eligible to apply for the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC).

With respect to the ACAE, submission of any complaints relating directly to lack of compliance with the Accreditation Standards and requirements of accreditation must be made in writing and signed by the complainant. The complainant's contact information including address and telephone number is to be included with the complaint. The submitted complaint must include specific details and documentation to support the complaint and should be sent to the executive director, Accreditation Commission for Audiology Education, 1718 M Street, NW # 297, Washington, D.C. 20036-4504. The telephone number is (202) 986-9500, and the facsimile number is (202) 986-9550.

Upon receipt of the complaint, the executive director of ACAE will forward copy to the department chair within 10 business days, for response and appropriate documentation. If the complainant identification is to be withheld, the complaint will be forwarded in a de-identified format. The department chair will then have 30 business days to respond to the complaint, including providing documentation to support the response.

With respect to CAA, grievances about programs must:

  1. be against an accredited educational program or program in candidacy status in speech-language pathology and/or audiology

  2. relate to the standards for accreditation of education programs in audiology and speech-language pathology, and

  3. include verification, if the complaint is from a student or faculty/instructional staff member, that the complainant exhausted all institutional grievance and review mechanisms before submitting a complaint to the CAA.

All grievances must be signed and submitted in writing to the Chair, Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland, 20850. The complaint must clearly describe the specific nature of the complaint and the relationship of the complaint to the accreditation standards, and provide supporting data for the charge. The complainant's burden of proof is a preponderance or greater weight of the evidence. Complaints will not be accepted by email or facsimile.
