National Counselor Exam & National Certified Counselor Credential

The process for students to apply for the National Certified Counselor (NCC) credential has moved from a paper application to an online format.

Doctoral students and recent graduates will now apply using the application for counselors who have graduated, which is available at ProCounselor.nbcc.org.

NCE Exam

Taking the NCE is only one step in pursuing the NCC credential. This exam completed prior to students earning 3,000 hours of post-graduate counseling experience. Students are encouraged to take the NCE before graduating and in close proximity to the CPCE because of how similar the information is on both exams. 

If you have any questions regarding the NCC certification or the NCE exam, email NCEregistration@liberty.edu.
