For individuals who have already earned an eligible Master’s degree, the 18-credit Certificate in Counseling provides the opportunity to earn additional counseling credits through coursework in our CACREP-accredited School Counseling MA degree program. Depending on individual states' school/mental health counseling licensure requirements, districts' salary schedule, and/or other circumstances, the credits completed through the Certificate in Counseling may position students for eligibility for additional credential(s) and/or earning potential. 

The program can be completed in as few as nine months (depending on start term and course offerings) and is offered in a fully online format with weekly, synchronous live class meetings held in evenings via video conferencing software. The program consists of eight credits of required coursework and ten credits of elective coursework. Individual student plans of study will be determined through collaboration with Program leadership.
