What happens after I apply to the Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling program?
This program utilizes a rolling admissions policy, so applications will be considered
throughout the year as they are received. Students will be accepted into the program
until a class size of approximately 35 students is reached. Classes begin in the fall
term (early August).
The Admissions Committee screens applications, invites some applicants for an interview
and writing sample, evaluates the applicants and selects new students. Following the
completion of the admission process, each applicant will be notified of the Admission's
Committee decision in writing, including any conditions that must be satisfied prior
to or following enrollment.
Due to COVID-19, we will conduct online interviews only for the 2021-2022 admissions
cycle at all PCOM locations.
As an applicant to PCOM's Master of Science program in Mental Health Counseling, you
are responsible for ensuring that all admissions materials are completed accurately
and submitted in a timely manner.
Background check requirement
In an effort to foster the safety and well-being of the entire campus community, as
well as to ensure that students accepted to PCOM will be permitted to perform clerkships/internships
required to successfully complete their degree requirements, PCOM requires all first
year students to complete a criminal background check prior to matriculation. All
students must have their criminal background checks processed through a PCOM vendor
of choice. The Admissions Office will send notification of the process after confirmation
of enrollment and must have this information on file prior to orientation; students
will not be allowed to start classes without this information.
Prior to enrollment, all candidates are required to complete the College's Technical Standards for Admission and Matriculation (PDF).
