About ACAE

Mission
The mission of ACAE is to assure the public that only those programs that have complied with this 
agency's standards and that graduate competent audiologists trained at the Au.D. level will be accredited.

Purpose
The purpose of ACAE accreditation is to recognize, reinforce and promote high quality performance
in Au.D. educational programs through a rigorous verification process.  This process will produce
evidence that Au.D. programs have prepared graduates who are qualified to be doctoral-level 
audiologists.  It also will assure communities of interest that graduates will be able to function
according to the national scope of practice, as defined by the professional organization.

Benefits
•  Automatic access to categorized current and historical accreditation data;

•  Ability to enter data once, update it as necessary, and have permanent and
    immediate access to it;

•  Innovative and interactive electronic partnership with academic programs and
    other stakeholders;

•  Instantaneous access to a national database for comparative purposes;

•  Ability to provide national trends and analyses;

•  Constructive online interaction between academic programs and visitors;

•  Cooperative relationships with programs, resulting in improved outcomes for
    students and the teaching environment;

•  Substantial reduction of resource utilization;

•  Assurance to public that programs have been evaluated through a rigorous
    verification process;
