School Counseling

The Master of Arts in School Counseling program is designed to meet State educational requirements for licensure for the State of North Carolina. Because licensure requirements often change, the University has not made a determination of the extent to which its program meets State educational requirements for licensure in other states, and this webpage will be updated accordingly. For prospective students from states outside of North Carolina or who wish to practice in another state, the University will make that determination prior to a student’s enrollment.

The two websites below will provide links that lead to counseling licensure requirements for The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) website provides information regarding school counseling certification/licensure requirements for all 50 states.

In many cases, the University can provide the instruction needed by these states as additional courses. The student should contact:

For states where the curriculum does not meet state criteria, the University can often provide the instruction needed. For prospective students from states outside of North Carolina or who wish to practice in another state, the University will make that determination prior to a student’s enrollment.
