Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept students throughout the year?
No. Applications are accepted until March 1, and admitted students begin in the fall semester.

Is the program accredited?
Yes. The program has dual accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Graduates are academically prepared to pursue licensure as both a LPC and a LMFT.

Will I be eligible for licensure upon graduation?
