The School Counseling program of The University of Akron is offered by the School of Couseling.


This course of study is based upon CACREP and the Ohio Department of Education's standards. 

The School Counseling program of The University of Akron is designed to prepare students to become effective leaders in the process of transforming school counseling under the ASCA's National Model for School Counseling Programs.

Placement Objectives for Graduates

Graduates who pass the school counseling Pearson exam and BCI/FBI background check must submit the appropriate application to the Ohio Department of Education which issues the school counseling license. School counseling licensees then become eligible to be hired as school counselors in K-12 schools in the State of Ohio. Because the program is both CACREP and NCATE accredited, graduates find that school counseling license portability from Ohio to other states is possible.
