School Counseling Program
The concentration in school counseling is designed to prepare beginning counselors to work within a school environment. Successful completion of the program and exit exam results in Pre-K through 12 certification as a school counselor.
Methods of instruction in the School Counseling Program include: classroom teaching/lecture, student led presentations, hybridized course delivery with content pushed out to students, engaging with the institution’s learning management system, Blackboard, independent reading and research, and clinical placements in the appropriate field setting. In accordance with established graduate school matriculation policies, known in the Graduate Catalog as “Continuation Standards” students are expected to maintain a B average in order to remain in the program. Students who earn a C in one class must repeat it for a better grade. Earning two Cs will result in program dismissal.

The comprehensive exam is an exit examination required of all master’s degree students. It is ordinarily taken during the student’s last semester of study in the program. The purpose of the exam is to assess the student’s knowledge of counseling to ensure minimum competence in the field. The CPCE will also provide collective feedback that can be used by the program in developing/adapting curriculum.
