Note on Licensure
Walden University’s MS in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling is not accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) or the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE), specialized accrediting bodies recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), which is a requirement for licensure in some states. The MS in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling program is designed to prepare graduates to qualify to sit for licensing exams and to meet the academic licensure requirements of many state counseling boards. Because no graduate program can guarantee licensure upon graduation, we encourage students to consult the appropriate agency to determine specific requirements. Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance on licensure issues; however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with all state licensure requirements. Walden makes no representations or guarantee that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain state licensure or endorsement. For more information about licensure, students should visit the National Board for Certified Counselors at www.nbcc.org/StateLicensure and contact the appropriate licensing body. International students are encouraged to identify and contact their appropriate licensing body.
The MS in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling is not accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) or the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE). However, the program was developed to be in line with national standards for marriage, couple, and family counseling. Since Walden’s MS in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling is a new program, the university is not yet able to apply for CACREP or COAMFTE accreditation. Students will be notified at such time if the program becomes accredited in the future.
