Advancing Auditing in Higher Education


Association of College & University Auditors

As the complexity of higher education intensifies, the need for internal audit, risk management, and compliance services has never been greater. Since its incorporation in 1958, ACUA has been a primary resource for higher education auditing, regulatory compliance, and risk management. This website was developed to further serve the higher education community to help enhance internal controls, risk mitigation, and compliance monitoring systems.


ACUA Official Statement
April 2019
University Admissions Processes
On March 12, 2019, the United States Department of Justice unveiled a nationwide college admissions scam the Department alleges involves exam cheating and athletic recruitment. The vast nature and certain high-profile arrests have kept the allegations alive in the mind of the public and on campuses. The type of fraud referenced is challenging to detect by its nature as it involved collusion working around existing controls.
To assist our membership in having campus conversations and conducting reviews appropriate to their individual situations, the Association asked leaders within our membership to provide a framework of potential audit objectives, sources of information, questions and areas for review.  As in all things in audit, the appropriate response will depend upon the specific risks present at each institution. We invite you to continue the conversation with Connect ACUA available to the membership at Click here to access the list of resources. 
Thank you,
Justin Noble
ACUA President
