Many employers target CD students because of your background in communication, education, developmental, and medical needs. Some of these announcements are for part time work and do not require an M.S. degree, while others are specific to new graduates looking for Clinical Fellowships. Job announcements received by the CD Program are posted on the job announcement page.
There are many important dates to keep track of every semester. A CD Program Calendar has been developed to track all events and deadlines related to the CD program. It will be updated regularly.

A complaint may be made to the Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA) about any accredited program or program in candidacy status may be submitted by any student, instructional staff member, speech-language pathologist, audiologist, and/or member of the public.
Criteria for Complaints Against Graduate Education Programs. For a complaint to be considered by the CAA, it must:
(a) be against an accredited education program or program in Candidacy status in speech-language pathology and/or audiology,
(b) relate to the Standards for Accreditation of Graduate Education Programs in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, and specify where possible the relevant standards, and
(c) include verification and documentation (e.g., copies of grievance processes, communications verifying completion of processes, etc.) if the complaint is from a student or faculty/instructional staff member at that institution, that the complainant exhausted all relevant institutional grievance and review mechanisms before submitting a complaint to the CAA, if relevant to the complaint.
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 burden of proof rests with the complainant. All written testimony must include the complainant's name, address, and telephone contact information and the complainant's relationship to the program in order for the Accreditation Office to verify and communicate with the source of the complaint.
Complaints against a program may be submitted even if separate action is pending against the program by another body, except as outlined above.

All complaints 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.
