Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept students throughout the year?
Applications are accepted until March 1, and admitted students begin in the fall semester.

Is the program accredited?
The master's program is accredited by COAMFTE.  The program's accreditation allows students to meet the academic requirements for licensure as a LMFT, in Louisiana and most other states.

Will I be eligible for licensure upon graduation?
Graduates must apply with the state licensing board to become a state-approved intern and must be approved to be supervised by a board-approved supervisor. This required internship process takes at least two years post-degree, and must be completed within seven years of having registered with the board. For more information, visit http://lpcboard.org.

Can I attend as a part-time student?
