Because the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program is accredited by CACREP, graduates
are immediately eligible to receive their NCC (National Certified Counselor) designation
upon passing the NCE (National Counselor Exam) administered by NBCC (National Board
for Certified Counselors). As a courtesy for students at Southeastern, the NCE is
offered on campus for internship students. For more information, contact Dr. Hunter
Alessi at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also learn more about this certification at the NBCC website, www.nbcc.org.
A graduate of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program meets the coursework requirements to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) through the LPC Board of Examiners. However, licensing requirements also include a 3000 hour post-master's supervised experience working with clients, as well as a passing score on the licensing exam. For more information, including application forms, please go to the LPC Board of Examiners' website ( www.lpcboard.org) and click on Forms/Packets.
