The nationally recognized accrediting body for counseling programs is the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
Because this program is new, it is not accredited by CACREP. It is the policy of CACREP to accredit programs that have graduated at least one cohort of students.
The program has been intentionally designed around the CACREP standards and the college will apply for accreditation as soon as the program is eligible. Please know this is a declaration of our intentions, not a guarantee of accreditation.
The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program has been approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
