The Accreditation Commission for Audiology Education (ACAE), through its established procedures of evaluation and monitoring, attempts to ensure that AuD degree programs maintain high standards of educational quality.
The ACAE was not created to serve and will not serve as an arbiter or mediator of disputes that may arise between the AuD degree programs and other parties. However, the ACAE is interested in hearing from groups or individuals who may have specific comments relating directly to a program’s lack of compliance with the ACAE Standards and requirements.
The institution shall inform its students of the ACAE’s mailing address and/or telephone number (Address: Director, ACAE, 11480 Commerce Park Drive, Suite 220, Reston, VA 20191. Telephone: 703-226-1056), the procedures for filing complaints with ACAE (as described below), and that only complaints relating directly to the lack of compliance with the Accreditation Standards and requirements of accreditation will be considered by the ACAE. Upon advice of counsel, the Board retains the right to withhold public disclosure of information if potential legal action is involved in the complaint.
