Over the past five years, our graduates have achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE).
Here are a few comments from our students:
In addition to the 60 credit-hour M.S. degree, you also must pass a licensure examination and complete at least two years of 3,000 hours of supervised work experience (i.e., a paid position). For more information on licensure requirements for professional counseling in all 50 states, visit the American Counseling Association website.
