Licensing 

New Online Licensure Application system for Counseling Licensing and Marriage and Family Therapist Licensing has arrived.  You can apply for your Counseling License and/or your Marriage and Family Therapist License all online.  You can even apply for Specialty Licenses!  Start here! 

Students are encouraged to submit their application for licensure at the beginning of their last semester in Graduate School.  A letter from the department chair or the Dean attesting to the courses enrolled in, and projected date of graduation, may be sufficient to allow us to endorse you to take the NCE.  We must receive all application materials, a final official transcript, and official NCE scores before you will be scheduled for the Oral Exam before the Board.

All documents are in PDF format unless otherwise noted.
