The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) is the national student division of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) that serves as a collective voice for students and advances the rights, interests, and welfare of students pursuing careers in audiology. The SAA introduces students to lifelong involvement in activities that promote and advance the profession of audiology and provides services, information, education, representation, and advocacy for both the profession and consumers of audiology services.
SAA membership consists of students enrolled in AuD, PhD, or other accredited audiology doctoral programs for a first professional degree in audiology as well as undergraduate/post-baccalaureate students interested in audiology. At any given time, the SAA has around 2,000 members. The SAA is affiliated with 71 SAA Chapters across the nation including Puerto Rico. SAA Chapters are divided into geographical regions, served by a Regional Representative and, in some states, a SAA State Ambassador.

The SAA is overseen by a student-led Board of Directors supported by student volunteers assigned to SAA committees and task forces. All current SAA Members are eligible to serve on a committee or task force. Opportunities are routinely posted on the Audiology Community under "Current Volunteer Opportunities". More information about existing volunteer opportunities can be found on the Volunteer web page.
