Certificate in Rehabilitation Counseling

The Rehabilitation Counseling Certificate is reserved for individuals who possess a Master’s degree in a related field (i.e., social work, psychology, etc.) and are interested in obtaining knowledge and training in Rehabilitation Counseling. 

Certificates may be earned by regularly matriculated or extended learning students and denote successful completion of a prescribed program of study designed to:

  1. impart specified professional/vocational/career competencies; or
  2. produce mastery of the content of a sub-field of an academic major (discipline); or
  3. provide exposure to the range of materials in a traditional or emerging interdisciplinary field.

Certain certificate programs contain 600-level courses as requirements and/or electives. These 600-level courses may not be taken by undergraduate students. Candidates must receive two-thirds of their certificate-applicable credit from the university. The transferring of credit or the substitution of courses may occur only after application to the appropriate campus authority.
