See the Counseling Program Coordinator or Faculty Supervisor for further information. Also note that some field experience sites require completion of a background check prior to accepting students to the field experience. All background checks are at the expense of the student.

The American Counseling Association Code of Ethics (2014) requires that all counselor education programs in good standing provide a remediation process for all counselor education students that includes regular and ongoing evaluation of a student's general fit with the counseling profession. Appraisal will occur with faculty review of didactic and clinical competencies, attention to ethical code, openness to supervision, self-awareness and formation, and academic competency. When experiencing challenges in demonstrating academic success, development of appropriate interpersonal and/or counseling skills, and openness to clinical supervision, students may be initially required to meet with the course instructor to attempt to remediate student challenges. If unresolved, the instructor may request that the student be referred to the campus Counseling Program Advisory Committee. This Committee will review the reasons for student lack of success and will interview relevant instructors and the student to determine the most appropriate path for student success related to a potential future in the counseling profession. The most appropriate path may include but is not limited to: completion of extra coursework and/or field experience, completion of and/or participation in personal counseling, and/or dismissal or time off from the counselor education program prior to completion of the degree program. Hence, successful completion of the MA in counseling professional degree program may require additional coursework beyond the stated number of degree credit hours (48 or 60) for those students requiring remedial coursework. Student openness to and cooperation with the campus Counseling Program Advisory Committee and adherence to ACA Code of Ethics (2014) will be integral to the student's continued success within the program. Note: While the campus Counseling Program Advisory Committee may review cases related to academic challenge, it is not intended to mediate grade appeals or dismissals related to academic failure. The committee is in place to work with students who are challenged in one or more areas and are seeking a plan for remediation to remain in good standing or be transitioned out of the program.
