School Counseling

Comprehensive Examinations

All students seeking a degree in School Counseling are required to successfully complete the comprehensive examination. The exam will be given once in the fall and once in the spring. Students typically take the exam during or just prior to their final semester in the program. If there is a question regarding the quality of responses on the comprehensive examination, it will be read by another faculty member. If necessary, the student will have the opportunity to rewrite a question one time, or to complete an oral examination with the School Counseling Faculty.

Personal Growth Experience

All students are required to participate in a counseling experience designed to enhance self-growth and self-awareness. This may be individual or group counseling, or a structured workshop, and must be a minimum of 12 contact hours in length. Students are to establish appropriate documentation of this experience with the Program Coordinator.
