Counselor Education (Certificate)Apply Now
Our innovative online program prepares school teachers, administrators, staff, advisors, tutors in schools and universities, human service workers, and individuals interested in counseling work to advocate and support students, their families, clients and local communities. Our certificate program allows students to learn in a flexible environment, with flexible online classwork, without the hassle of traffic and on-campus parking. Students will meet online each week for a 90-minute interactive discussion with the professor, instructors and classmates, in order to stay connected and challenged. The certificate program alone does not prepare students to work as professional counselors. In order to work in professional counseling, additional classes, training and licensure will be required through a master’s degree program.
Applicants should have a 3.0 GPA but may be admitted provisionally based on related graduate classes completed in the field of education, human services or training and development, and, ultimately, by earning at least a “B” (3.0) average in the first GCCE class.
- Completed online Graduate School application and admission fee

Admission to the GCCE online program takes place in the spring for a summer start. Rolling base admissions are possible if seats are available. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
