SOC-OFE Masters Students - SOC Program Resources: Credentialing and Licensure

Credentialing and Licensure

The counseling masters’ programs are all CACREP accredited. The programs may meet or exceed requirements for licensure in most states where licensure or certification is available; however, not all the counseling programs are license-eligible, and states have varying requirements for licensure and certification for each program.

Students seeking licensure or certification in their state are responsible for ensuring that their program meets the necessary requirements. Additionally, students are responsible for checking with their state licensure board throughout their programs for updates to program and field experience requirements for licensure or certification. If students find that their state requires additional courses or experiences to be academically eligible for licensure, they can request to add the State Education Specialization to their program of study.
