Current Students: Please take time to complete the student satisfaction survey
View information for School Counseling Candidates on a DCP Prior to 2013-2014 if you are using a Degree Completion Plan (DCP) prior to the 2013-2014 academic year.
Appeals will not be accepted from M.Ed. in School Counseling students who were on a DCP prior to 2013-2014, broke enrollment, and want to go back on their former DCP. This cannot be allowed because DCPs prior to 2013-2014 do not meet CACREP program requirements, and allowing it would jeopardize the program’s CACREP accreditation.
If you are completing the School Counseling Degree using the 2013-2014 DCP or later, then you should refer to the documents and forms found at the Advising Guide.
- Are intensives virtual moving forward?
Right now (Fall 2020) intensives are online. However, we do not know the details past Fall.
- Can I take COSC 505 and COSC 512 at the same time.
Although we do not encourage this as these courses are quite intense, we will allow it. However, the COSC 505/COUC intensive week must be taken before the COSC/COUC 512 intensive week.
- Is all work online?
No. Just as if you were on campus, you will be meeting with the professors via Webex/Microsoft Teams which are online platforms that allow for audio and video access. The intensive week is Monday-Friday and you must be present via Webex with audio AND video each day.
- Will I still be able to work the week of intensive?
In order to pass this class, you must be present and participate (audio and video) each day. If you have young children, you will want to secure childcare for them as you will be conducting, observing, and participating in pseudo/practice counseling sessions each day. You will need to be in a quiet, distraction free location. Other individuals should not be present or anywhere they can hear you or your classmates. If needed, use ear buds. You should not be driving in your car or engaging in any other activities. If you work during the day, you will need to take the week off. Please treat this as if you were on campus. There are NO exceptions.
- Besides the intensive week, is there other course work?
Yes, intensive courses are 14-16 weeks. There is additional work (quizzes, discussion boards, etc.) that must be completed outside the intensive week.
