Applicants are required to disclose any current or past criminal charges or convictions, or pending charges that might result in a conviction, when applying for admission to a Department of Counseling Program. Failure to report a criminal history may result in denial and/or dismissal from the Department of Counseling and the program. It is the prerogative of the Department of Counseling faculty and administration to request additional information about the criminal history, and based on the information provided, to deny admission (and/or for Department of Counseling students, to be dismissed), as students in all Department programs are preparing to work with a vulnerable population and must apply for background checks prior to internship and licensure.
The Department of Counseling offers graduate assistantships to the majority of students admitted into a doctoral program. Assistantships are awarded based on need and availability. Doctoral students are encouraged to complete a graduate assistantship application if interested in this possibility.
