Phase Two: Admissions Day Participation
All applicants with a completed application package and who meet the minimum admissions requirements as described above will be required to participate in the on-campus Admissions Day interview process. The Admissions Day is an opportunity for faculty to assess the applicant's potential for work as a counselor. Admissions Day is held on the third Friday of March and the third Friday of November each year.
All newly accepted students are required to complete an online new student orientation session. Students who do not complete this session in the semester that they are accepted for admission will have a registration hold put on their account.
Students must submit a completed application with supporting materials by October 1st for the spring semester and February 1st for the summer and fall semesters.
