Students may choose between a synchronous online format or an asynchronous online format. Both offer the same curriculum and prepare students to take the National Counselor Licensure Examination at the conclusion of the program.

The program is fully accredited by: The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

The curriculum of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program includes coursework, practicum, and internships-- all of which can be completed within two to three years, depending upon the student's desired time frame. The curriculum also incorporates a variety of subject areas which gives graduates the opportunity to seek a career in a general setting or a more specific setting.

After receiving licensure, Clinical Mental Health Counseling students may serve in a mental health agency, substance abuse treatment center, hospital, school, church, and in other professional settings. 

Over the last 10 years, graduates of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program have had a National Counselor Licensure Exam pass rate of 65-100%.
