Required Background Check

The background check and fingerprinting policy is a requirement for students entering Liberty University’s graduate counseling degree programs. Additionally, some state licensure boards require background checks and have stringent background requirements that determine an individual’s eligibility for licensure. Therefore, the leadership team of the Department of Counselor Education and Family Studies believes it to be unethical to allow students through the graduate counseling licensure degree programs to later find they are ineligible to become licensed or find employment in their state.

In order to be eligible for the practicum or internship application, submit your application now to CastleBranch.


Questions concerning the background check and fingerprinting policy may be sent to COUNbackground@liberty.edu.
