The Program in School Counseling typically accepts 25 students for matriculation into the master's ( Ed.M.) program and 30-40 students in the CAS certificate program in the fall only of each year. The Program typically receives applications from many more qualified individuals than it is able to accept. Admissions decisions are made by a committee composed of faculty and School Counseling Advisory Board members. They take into consideration: undergraduate GPA, Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores, a personal interview (if the candidate is granted one), recommendations from faculty and work supervisors, and the applicant's statement of purpose. All applications must be completed by February 1st to be considered for admission in the fall.

Each year, mean Verbal and Quantitative GRE scores of accepted students are close to (if not exceeding) the 50th percentile rank for each score. Undergraduate GPA is above 3.0. Efforts are made to achieve diversity within each cohort.

Application Procedure

Students are admitted into the program once a year in fall. The application deadline for fall admission is February 1.
