  • Professional Counseling: The institution has not made a determination that its curriculum meets the state educational requirements for licensure or certification. Our Clinical Counseling program has been designed to meet the educational requirements for students and graduates residing in Pennsylvania, and it may be transferable to other states. However, state requirements vary and can often change. Prospective students residing outside of Pennsylvania and/or intending to complete field placements outside of Pennsylvania, should contact the State Licensing Board in their respective state prior to enrolling in the Clinical Counseling program. Educational and professional requirements and qualifications vary by state and country, and it is the student’s responsibility to seek the appropriate guidance before beginning any academic program. We are happy to consult with prospective students in this process, as it may be possible to meet the requirements of a given state with guidance in course selection.
