The Student Voice of Audiology 

The Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) represents the collective voice of audiology students. The SAA is committed to serving students of all backgrounds pursuing careers in audiology including advancing their rights, interests, and welfare.  

Through lifelong involvement, students and the SAA can help promote and advance the profession of audiology. From providing services and information to educating and representing the industry, as well as building an inclusive community, advocacy for the profession and consumers is essential.  

The SAA provides an abundance of resources and a wealth of information for students to get started.  


Why Join the Student Academy of Audiology? 

The most valuable, intangible benefit of SAA membership is the student voice. The SAA is dedicated to making sure the student voice is heard in the discussions involving students and the progression of the profession. In addition to advocacy resources, the SAA provides educational opportunities that span outside of the classroom, practical resources for the everyday audiology (or soon to be) audiology student, as well as additional savings and discounts on Academy member benefits and services to help lessen the financial load many students carry. If you have any questions about the SAA or becoming a member, contact our membership department.
