Admission Process

The Counseling Program Admission Committee adheres to the 2016 CACREP Standards in its admission procedure. Specifically, Section 1.L.:

Entry-level admission decision recommendations are made by the academic unit’s selection committee and include consideration of each applicant’s (1) relevance of career goals, (2) aptitude for graduate-level study, (3) potential success in forming effective counseling relationships, and (4) respect for cultural differences.

To assist the Committee in making these decisions, applicants are required to complete the following process.

An online application must be submitted through GradCAS and the following materials will be required in the online application prior to committee review by the Counseling Admissions Board.

Application Review and Interview

The Admission Committee will review each application packet and determine whether the applicant has met initial requirements to be considered for admission. The applicant will be contacted in order to schedule a virtual interview with a committee member. After the interview the Admission Committee will make a final determination of acceptance and the applicant will be notified.

Admission is dependent upon submission of these documents and a positive review by the Counseling Admission Committee. All required admission documents must be submitted to the Graduate Studies office.
