The Doctor of Audiology (AuD) program is designed to provide students with academic and clinical practicum experiences that meet or exceed the requirements of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Audiology (CCC-AUD). The Doctor of Audiology (AuD)  degree program at Auburn University is accredited through 2025 by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2200 Research Boulevard #310, Rockville, Maryland 20850 (phone 800-498-2071 or 301-296-5700).

Auburn operates on a 15-week semester system. Doctoral students attend courses offered through the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences during fall, spring and summer semesters. Students may enter the program during fall semester only.

A student's undergraduate background may influence the time required to complete the Doctor of Audiology degree. Students with an undergraduate background in speech, language and hearing sciences generally graduate after eleven academic semesters, including a clinical residency during which they work full-time for a period of nine months in the final year of the program.

For students with a bachelor's degree in another field, a longer program may be necessary. Such students must take prerequisite courses to prepare for graduate study in audiology. The student's plan of study must conform to ASHA certification requirements, and an advisor will work with the new student in selecting prerequisite courses.
