Applicants are evaluated on their own academic merits and ability to complete our programs successfully. Once all the necessary documentation is received, your application materials are reviewed and a decision is made. You will be notified of the decision in writing.

To be admitted to the program, the following are required:

  • Completed Application Dated & Signed. The application is a generic one for many of the graduate programs at IU Southeast so some information may not apply to you. For example, you do not need to submit a resume and are not expected to have a teaching license.
  • $40 Application Fee
  • Three (3) Recommendations: It is recommended that at least two of the letters be from professors who have a good knowledge of the candidate’s academic performance and potential.Please note that the application form provides you space to list those who will be writing letters of recommendation; a form will automatically be sent to those individuals.
  • Official Transcript(s): A bachelor’s or master’s degree from an accredited college or university, with a suggested minimum grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) in the student’s undergraduate major, is expected. Applicants with an undergraduate GPA below 3.0 may still be considered if other admission criteria warrant their consideration. Applicants should have a degree in Psychology or a related field such as Education, Communication, or Humanities. Admission also is considered for those who otherwise demonstrate the competency necessary to succeed in graduate work in Mental Health Counseling. Official transcripts from all colleges and universities you have attended are required. Please have the transcripts sent to School of Social Science, attn: Yolanda Zavala-Howe, IU Southeast, 4201 Grant Line Road, New Albany, IN 47150.
  • Personal Statement: The personal statement should clearly explain the candidate’s relevant educational background and the reasons the candidate wishes to pursue the degree.
  • The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is required for admission to the program. Candidates may submit recent (that is, no more than 3 years old) results of the GRE’s general exam and/or subject exam. Acceptance will not be based entirely on the score.
