Two Options for Admission: Master's and Direct Admit

Doctoral applicants may hold a master's degree in counseling or a related field; however, this is not required for admission into our program. Students with bachelor's degrees may apply directly to the program. We should note that current needs in the doctoral program tend to favor students with a master's degree. However, applicants to the doctoral program who the faculty believe may be better served by the master's program will have their application considered for admission into the master's program at the time of review.

NOTE: All Application materials must be received on or before December 1.

Doctoral applications are reviewed by faculty in January, and a small number of applicants are selected to attend a one-day interview in mid February. A final cohort of between six and eight students are offered acceptance to the program.
