Program Enrollment and Student Performance

Our full‐time program admits students each year in the fall. In the academic year 2021-2022 we had fifty-five (55) students enrolled.  About 20% of our students are from underrepresented groups or diverse minority backgrounds, and about 16% of our students self-reported having a disability.

Twenty-seven (27) students graduated from the program in 2022 for a completion rate of 96.4%.

Student outcomes are evaluated each year on a variety of different metrics that are part of the overall program evaluation and college assessment process. The graduate school at the University of North Carolina does not give letter grades, but rather grades on a High Pass, Pass, Low Pass and Fail system. All students in the program earn High Pass or Pass grades.

Graduates’ Examination Pass Rates

For the past five years, the CRMHC program has had a 100 percent pass rate on the Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) exam, which is much higher than the 2022 national average of 71 percent (www.crccertification.com). Several students also took and successfully passed the NCE exam.

Employment of Graduates

Of our twenty-seven (27) graduates, twenty-six (26) are employed and one is in a PsyD program, for a 100% job placement rate. The graduates are employed in a variety of positions in mental health settings, on ACT teams, working with individuals with autism, developmental disabilities, and traumatic brain injuries, and helping individuals with disabilities find meaningful employment. Graduates from past classes have been admitted to PhD. programs in rehabilitation counselor education, counselor education, clinical psychology, school counseling and school psychology.
