  • Homework, in-class work, and group projects
  • Practicum and internship demands
  • A minimum grade point average of 3.0 (B) with no more than two grades of C throughout their coursework

Additionally, candidates are expected to meet professional dispositions, which include but are not limited to:

  • Putting forth time and effort into this program
  • Being punctual and dependable
  • Willingness to accept feedback and differing opinions
  • Personal and professional reflection
  • Sensitivity to and acceptance of diversity
  • Professional attire and communication with professors, peers, and other school professionals

Students must also demonstrate professional and ethical behavior consistent with the counseling profession when in practicum and internship. Any student who fails to maintain the appropriate level of professionalism can be immediately dismissed from the program, even if in good academic standing.

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.
