License Eligibility

Licensure is important for professional practice as a mental health professional and the Mental Health Counseling Program is designed to prepare graduates to meet the educational requirements for licensure as a Mental Health Counselor in Indiana and most other states. For students who are interested in applying for licensure in other states, the faculty will provide assistance in locating and understanding the licensing regulations for those states. The faculty also will provide assistance in developing an educational plan of study that will allow students to compile a portfolio that can be submitted to the licensing board in other states.
