LiveText Field Experience

The Department of Counselor Education and Family studies currently has the following policy regarding LiveText:

Students on the 60-hour Professional Counseling degree completion plan are required to purchase and activate LiveText with Field Experience as part of their materials for Counseling Practicum (COUN/CMHC 698) and Counseling Internship (COUN/CMHC 699). LiveText is used for students to log their hours and for approved supervisors to complete evaluations of the students’ counseling skills.

LiveText is a one-time only purchase that is good for five years. Once purchased, LiveText must be activated to ensure placement. Students do not need to purchase and activate LiveText a second time for Counseling Internship (COUN/CMHC 699) if they have purchased it for Counseling Practicum (COUN/CMHC 698) or an earlier class. Please understand there will be negative implications if students do not purchase LiveText.

Note: LiveText is not a requirement for students in non-WebEx sections of Counseling Practicum (COUN 698)/Counseling Internship (COUN 699). If you purchase LiveText and do not need it, you will be unable to receive a refund.
