The Speech-Language Pathology Program has applied for accreditation in 2013 with the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA). The Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA) is recognized as an accrediting agency for audiology and speech-language pathology education programs by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education (ED). "Pre-accreditation" status with the CAA is awarded to developing or emerging programs for a maximum period of five years. As a candidate for accreditation, Jacksonville University's Graduate Speech-Language Pathology Program will abide by all ASHA standards and its graduates will meet the academic and clinical requirements for ASHA certification in Speech-Language Pathology, and are eligible to apply for state licensure. Holding candidacy, which is an accredited status, signifies that the program in speech-language pathology at Jacksonville University complies with meticulous standards for accreditation. An accredited status (candidacy or full) must be awarded prior to enrolling students. A CAA site visit will occur on the JU campus on December 2 and 3rd, 2013. For more information on the CAA site visit please email Dr. Christine Sapienza at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on CAA, please see visit Council on Academic Accreditation.
