How to Apply to the UNI Counseling Program
Admission to the UNI Counseling Program is competitive. All faculty members carefully review all candidates' academic record, personal and goal statements, and work or volunteer experience in the counseling or human services field. Based on a numerial rating scale, the counseling faculty select the most qualified candidates based on how many part-time and full-time students we can accomodate. There are two levels of admission: Level One: Admission to Coursework (provisional) status and Level Two: Program Approval (degree) status.
Prospective students wishing to take courses prior to Level One: Admission to Coursework may take only the following courses:
- COUN 4103/5103 Introduction to Professional Counseling
- COUN 4105/5105 Counseling Skills
- COUN 6227 Counseling Theory (OR another course, as approved by the advisor)
*If all of these classes are closed, please contact Dr. Jan Bartlett for appropriate substitutions.
* Please note that no more than 6 hours of coursework taken prior to first level provisional admission can be counted towards your program of study. Completion of any of these courses does not guarantee admission to the program.
