Endorsement as a school counselor is accomplished through the Department of Education in the state where a school counselor is employed.
For example, in Nebraska, certification requires the Master of Science in Education (MSE) degree in counseling, a valid Nebraska teaching certificate, and verification of two years of successful teaching experience.
A student without a teaching certificate may also complete any school counseling program and earn the MSE in School Counseling from Wayne State College. Some states, such as Iowa, allow individuals with this degree to serve as school counselors. Some may require a few additional courses.
