Post-Master Certification and Licensure

Old Main


SCHOOL COUNSELING CERTIFICATION

For those students who already possess a Master in counseling and are interested in pursuing certification as a school counselor in the state of Pennsylvania, contact the Graduate Admissions Office. After application, the Department of Counselor Education will review your educational background and advise you on what classes you will need to complete to become certification eligible.

LICENSURE PREPARATION

For those with a Master degree in Counseling and/or a Counseling related field, the Department of Counselor Education offers coursework needed to complete the requirements for Licensed Professional Counselor and/or Marriage and Family Therapist. The State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors reviews applicants' materials and determines what coursework, if any, is needed to meet the educational requirements for the Licensed Professional Counselor and/or Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. The State Board is the only entity that can determine if a candidate has met all the requirements for licensure.  Once the State Board has assessed your coursework and identified what classes you will need to become licensure eligible, the Department of Counselor Education's faculty will review your transcript and advise you on courses to take.
