Students have up to eight years for degree completion with an option to complete dual licensure coursework, satisfying both school counseling and clinical mental health licensure. To obtain licensure, the Professional School Counseling candidates take the Praxis II School Counseling Exam 0421 and the Clinical Mental Health candidates take the National Counselor Exam (NCE). The program’s job placement rates are based on the number of students who within six months of receiving their degree have obtained employment in the field they were trained or a related one.
