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 many other states (The MMHC Program does not currently meet requirements for licensure for the state of Kentucky); however, if accreditation is granted by CACREP the MMHC Program would meet licensing requirements for Kentucky. 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.
