Applicants for the graduate program in Clinical Counseling and Marriage & Family (CCMF) must hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. A committee made up of Clinical Counseling & Marriage and Family Program (CCMF) faculty will make admissions decisions based upon a comprehensive review of applicants. The degree-seeking student will submit an application (including the required fee) electronically. There are two options in the CCMF Program to select from:
Students may pursue both the LPC and the LMFT in either the M.A. in CCMF or Dual degree.
The electronic application on the HSU website is sent to the Office of Graduate Studies and processed. All required items must be submitted to the Graduate Studies Office, or if applicable, uploaded to the applicants account before the completed application will be sent to the CCMF Program for review.
Applicants will apply and send all required items in by the semester deadline for entrance. Faculty will review all required components for each applicant, and those who are to be considered for admissions will be invited to campus for an interview with CCMF Program faculty. A completed application does not guarantee an interview.
Interviews may be in both group and/or individual format. Social interaction skills, questions focused on a) interest and motivation for a career as a licensed therapist, b) related work and life experience, c) awareness of applicants own issues related to family and personal growth, and, d) integration of spirituality in counseling may be covered in the interview. Upon completion of the interviews, admission decisions will be made based on a comprehensive review of all admissions information. An interview does not guarantee admission into the program.
The HSU application must be completed online. All other application materials including official transcripts (may not be uploaded), letters of recommendation, and writing sample may be uploaded with the application or sent to:
