Master's Requirements

Consideration is given to the applicant’s previous academic and professional experience. There should be in each applicant’s background a pattern of experience that supports his or her expressed desire to pursue advanced graduate studies in rehabilitation counseling. Appropriate evidence of such experience should be reflected in the applicant’s letters of recommendation.

The following are factors significant in determining ultimate acceptance as a candidate:

  • A bachelor’s degree in an appropriate field from an accredited institution, with a grade point average of 3.00 (B) or better in the last two years of undergraduate study.
  • A written statement of academic goals and career objectives that is 1-2 pages single-spaced, typed in length, that describes the applicant’s professional goals as they relate to the MA program in Rehabilitation Counseling.
  • Three letters of recommendation, with at least two from professors and/or employers.
  • Scores from the Graduate Record Examination General Test if the applicant’s grade point average is below 3.00.

Applicants with grade-point averages of less than 3.00 (B) in their last two years of undergraduate study must also submit scores from the Graduate Record Examination General Test (subject test scores not required).
