The CMHC program has a two-stage admissions process. The first stage consists of an in-depth evaluation of the completed application materials by the CMHC admissions committee. Applicants who have met the CMHC program standards on all of the admissions application packet materials will then be invited to continue the second stage of the admissions application process by attending on-campus interviews (group and individual) with the admissions committee. Decisions regarding final acceptance are made by the CMHC admissions committee following these interviews. Successful applicants typically have an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better, documented work or volunteer experience in a "helping endeavor", excellent references, very good interpersonal awareness and communication skills, and have articulated a compelling interest in the profession of mental health counseling. The CMHC program adheres to the competitive enrollment standards required by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Before entering the CMHC program, an applicant must complete all steps of the admissions process, receive formal notification of acceptance into the program, submit a signed copy of the CMHC program admissions policies and procedures agreement, and attend a required orientation meeting.
