Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling
Certifications and Licensure
Students who graduate from our program are eligible to become a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) by passing the National Certified Rehabilitation Counseling Exam. Today, there are more than 35,000 Certified Rehabilitation Counselors practicing in the US, and employers look for this certification to insure a quality rehabilitation-counseling workforce. Students are encouraged to take the CRC exam immediately upon graduation. Information about the CRC application process can be found at the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC) website located at http://www.crccertification.com/.
Our students are also eligible to become Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors and Licensed Mental Health Counselors depending on state of practice. Our fully online curriculum is designed to provide all rehabilitation and mental health counseling students with the opportunity to take the courses needed to be able to accrue post-graduate hours towards LPCC or LMHC, as well as the required exams.
