Departmental Admissions Process
Admissions are conducted once a year for matriculation into the MHSRC programs. Each year, the application decision process begins on April 15 and continues until the desired class size is accepted. Applications may be obtained by contacting the department or the Office of Student Affairs or by downloading an application from the Department’s website.
Part-time study is available to a limited number of students. Students anticipating special accommodations for the application and/or admission procedures should contact the Department for assistance.
The Department is committed to admitting a qualified and diverse group of students for each class. A strong commitment to the field of rehabilitation and the field of counseling are weighed heavily in the application process.
The Department of Rehabilitation Counseling holds an infor-mational session for prospective students and college advisors on the first Friday of each month from October through April, except January. Information is provided on the rehabilitation field and scope of practice, program curriculum, class schedule, employment opportunities, application/admission requirements, etc. These sessions are held in the Allied Health and Nursing Building, 1900 Gravier Street, Room 8A5 and start at 1:30 p.m.
Prospective students may also request a personal meeting with the Department’s admissions coordinator. Contact the department to schedule an appointment.
