An applicant must have completed a minimum of 60 graduate hours of coursework and received a master s degree or higher degree, in clinical mental health counseling, from an accredited educational institution, after successfully completing a course of study which meets all of the following criteria. This means that the counseling degree conferred upon the student by the educational institution and submitted to the Board for review may contain less than 60 graduate hours of coursework. But it must still cover all of the required coursework listed in Rule 3.8. If the degree contains 3 graduate credits in every section (1) through (7) as listed below, it meets both the degree requirement and the Group 1 requirement for licensure. If necessary, up to six graduate credits may be taken post degree to satisfy this section s requirement. If the degree lacks more than 6 credits from sections (1) through (7) (after the post degree supplementation permitted in this rule), the degree cannot count as a counseling or related degree necessary for licensure. If the counseling degree conferred contains less than 60 graduate hours of coursework, the applicant must acquire enough additional graduate hours of coursework to reach at least 60 graduate hours of coursework. A 48 credit degree will be accepted from an accredited school, but must be supplemented to meet the 60 credits requirement for licensure. In such instances you may supplement the 12 additional licensure credits post-degree. For example, an applicant may present for Board review a counseling degree consisting of 48 graduate hours of coursework covering all of the categories listed in Rule 3.8 below. In this example, the applicant would then also be required to show successful completion of an additional 12 graduate hours of coursework, at the same or at another educational institution, beyond the counseling degree conferred, to satisfy the requirement of minimum of 60 graduate hours of coursework. In addition, if the counseling degree conferred in this example does not contain coursework listed under Rule 3.8, the applicant would be allowed to supplement up to 6 credits. NOTE: If your degree conferred does not include a course in Diagnosis, Assessment & Treatment, your degree will not be considered a counseling or related degree and you will not be eligible for licensure by examination.
