Program Specific Admission RequirementsAdmission is granted only to those who show high promise of success in doctoral study. Generally, students must meet the following minimum criteria to be considered for admission:
- Have a Bachelor's Degree (for non-Master's entry) or Master's Degree in Counseling or a related area (for Master's entry) from an accredited college or university.
- Have the equivalent of two years full-time work experience as a professional counselor (post-Master's degree). This may be waived under exceptional circumstances.
- Satisfactory scores on the General Test of the GRE are required.
- Have positive recommendations from past employers relating to professional counseling experience, as well as from faculties of previous undergraduate/graduate studies.
- Have a positive recommendation from the Graduate Admissions Committee of the Department of Counseling.
- A successful interview with department faculty.
- Show potential in the area of research and writing, as evidenced by previous coursework and/or experience.
- Students who meet the minimum criteria are not guaranteed admission. Enrollment is limited to approximately ten full-time equivalent students per year, and each individual's application is evaluated as a whole, taking into account his or her strengths, weaknesses, background, and personal goals. The faculty also attempts to assess the personal characteristics of applicants and to admit for study those individuals who are judged to have the greatest potential for success in the academic program and as professional practitioners after graduation. Generally, the selection process involves choosing among highly qualified applicants, rather than qualified and unqualified applicants.
