Certificate in Clinical Mental Health Counselor to School Counselor

The certificate in clinical mental health counselor to school counselor provides students in the 60-credit-hour clinical mental health counseling (CMHC) track, former students who have graduated from the CMHC degree track, and Licensed Professional Counselor practitioners the opportunity to obtain the courses needed to meet the academic requirements for a school counselor license in Kansas. School counseling licensure will have the potential to provide additional career opportunities and promotion to the students who hold the certificate. Students with degrees less than 60 credit hours may be required to take additional courses beyond this certificate to meet the credit hours required for licensure by the Kansas State Department of Education licensing requirements for school counselors in Kansas.
