Career Options for Graduates

The School Counseling program prepares students to become a counselor working in school settings. Graduates of the School Counseling program typically achieve the credential of Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) through the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) in Colorado, or the licensing agency in the states in which they reside. Because our program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP), graduates are eligible to become Nationally Certified Counselors.
