Documentation Requirements for Admission

  1. A bachelor’s degree transcript from an accredited college or university;
  2. Submission of official Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores is not required for 2023 application cycle. Highlighting other evidence of academic success (awards, scholarships, publications, presentations) is encouraged.
  3. Three letters of recommendation;
  4. Completion of application supplement for CRMH within graduate school application;
    **Please note , we frequently get this question,
    What is the difference between the Personal Statement/Statement of Purpose and Six Supplemental Questions? Are these two separate documents or can I combine them into one?
    Your personal statement (referred to in the Slate Application system as “Statement of Purpose”) is your chance to convey to us your past experiences that led you to seek a career in Clinical Rehabilitation or Mental Health Counseling and apply to our program. We also want to learn about your professional goals, your personality, and writing style. The answers to the six questions are more pointed and ask for specific information that you may not have included in the personal statement, but again there may be some overlap. There are two separate documents to submit as part of your application, your personal statement and your responses to six supplemental questions for the program. We evaluate each of these documents separately, so please submit these as two distinct documents. It is acceptable and often important to refer to some of the same content or experiences that you include in both documents, but please do not just copy and paste the content.
  5. Graduate application fee for fall 2023 in the online SLATE application system;
  6. A pre-admission interview with the program faculty;
  7. Be eligible to meet student requirements to participate in clinical training.

Students are admitted one time per year, each fall semester. As a Graduate School program, we adhere to all Graduate School rules and regulations regarding admissions, matriculation, and graduation. All applicants who are considered for admissions will complete a personal interview with the admissions committee.

Deadline for Scholarships:

To become eligible for DHS scholarships, submit your program application.

To apply for the Merit Scholarship, applications must be submitted on or before December 6, 2022 and meet all UNC Graduate School criteria for consideration. The Merit Scholarship provides full tuition and a monthly stipend to work with the Division for the first year in the program.

Funding Information

Each year, the division can nominate exceptional applicants for consideration of Fellowships offered through the UNC Graduate School. To be considered for a Fellowship Nomination, applicants should submit their completed applications in the Slate system by December 6, 2022. Fellowship nominations are made in January, and decisions are issued by the Graduate School in the Spring.

Incoming students are also eligible for assistantship and scholarship awards offered through the Department of Health Sciences and the CRMH Division. Applications for these scholarships and awards are provided once the applicant is admitted to the program. The number of awards given each year depends on the funds allocated to the division. Decisions on division awards for incoming students are typically made at or by the beginning of the Fall semester of program entry. Since one must be accepted to the program before applying for these scholarships and awards, applicants are encouraged to submit their completed application earlier than the April 11, 2023 deadline.
