Accreditation for Counseling Programs

CACREP

The PhD in Counseling Program was granted national accreditation in July, 2009, from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

The Master of Science (MS) in Counseling Program was granted national accreditation in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Marital, Couple, Family Counseling and Therapy, and School Counseling specializations, in April, 2003, from the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

Accreditation is a process whereby an educational institution (and/or a program within an educational institution) is assessed for educational quality based on already developed standards. Accreditation also serves as a statement to the public that an institution and/or its programs are committed to educational quality.

The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) is the premiere national accreditation for Counseling Programs and signifies that the accredited program meets the highest standards of the counseling profession. The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) does not accredit EdS programs.

This prestigious distinction is most helpful to our students, who are seeking field placements and professional employment in today's competitive job market.

Graduates of Barry's Counseling Program are eligible to take the examination to become a National Certified Counselor (NCC).
