School Counseling Certification Program
About the Program
The 39 - 45 credit School Counseling Certification program prepares graduates to become certified school counselors. Graduates from the program are eligible to receive an institutional recommendation as elementary, secondary, or K-12 school counselors in Alaska and other states.
Eligibility for the School Counseling Certification Program
Applicants must currently hold a master's degree in education or one of several helping professions such as social work, psychology, or human services.
Up to 30 graduate credits may be applied from your previous degree.
Faculty members in the UAF Counseling program review the applicant's master's degree to determine which program requirements may have already been met. A course of study is designed for each admitted student including only the courses which were not previously satisfied. In order to earn the institutional recommendation from UAF, graduates must complete at least 15 UAF credits. Up to 30 graduate credits from the previous degree may be applied.
