Applicants must choose to apply to either the School Counseling program or the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program, but not both. The applicant will need to decide at the time of application which program to pursue; only one application will be reviewed per applicant per admissions cycle.
Applicants whose academic credentials are below the expected prerequisite course work, grade point average and/or test scores of those typically accepted to specific programs, but who through other means convey the potential for academic success, warrant offers of provisional or probationary admission. Probationary admission involves a specific time limit during which the student is expected to achieve the minimum GPA noted at the time of admission. When this condition is fulfilled, the department usually recommends advancement of regular graduate student status.
