The program described below is designed to provide for the acquisition of skills and competencies needed by counselors working in an agency setting.
A grade of "B" or better is required in all coursework counting towards the degree.
Counselor educators are ethically required to ensure that students meet academic requirements and demonstrate clinical competencies. Satisfactory progress will be predicated on a combination of factors such as academic success, clinical competence, adherence to ethical standards, and appropriate interpersonal functioning. Students who do not demonstrate satisfactory competence within any of these critical areas of professional performance may be terminated from the program. Core faculty will evaluate students on a continuing basis to determine students' satisfactory progression through the program. Other policies, procedures, and guidelines are addressed in the Counselor Education Graduate Student Handbook.
Students who are not enrolled for three consecutive semesters must complete all admissions requirements again and be reviewed by the program admissions committee.
