CACREP Accreditation

Our current dual master’s degree program in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling is fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). We obtained CACREP accreditation in 2016 for eight years (through October 31, 2024).

More information from our 10-year review

Starting in Fall 2023, our program will offer two separate degree options: A master’s in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling (CRC) and a master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC). Our CACREP accreditation for our two degrees is on-going. Based on our most recent communication with CACREP, as long as we receive accreditation by January 2025, all students who were in the program for the 18 months prior to accreditation begin established will be considered graduates from a CACREP accredited program.  This would include students who enter the program in August 2023 and graduate in May 2025.
