Application materials required:
The minimal prerequisite is a baccalaureate degree. Academic background, personal and emotional suitability, volunteer or paid experience in the helping professions, and the educational and professional goals of each candidate are evaluated before admission is granted. Screening includes, but is not limited to, a minimum GPA of 3.0 on all undergraduate work or on the last 90 credit hours, three letters of recommendation, and a mission statement about why you want to be a school counselor. A personal interview is required for those applicants who meet the initial application criteria.
Be sure you understand that this program is a part-time program that takes three years to complete. Also know that our student population tends to have more work experience and life experience.
