Admissions Requirements

Rehabilitation Counseling-specific Requirements

The Rehabilitation Counseling admissions committee reserves the right to request additional material in support of the candidate’s application.

Conditional Acceptance

In those cases where the applicant does not meet the requirement of 2.75 overall undergraduate GPA, the following applies: For those applicants with a 2.5 to 2.74 overall undergraduate GPA, acceptance may be given conditionally if other admissions criteria are met. For part-time students, the department will review the student's work at the completion of 4 courses and will make recommendations regarding the removal of the conditional status. For full-time students, such review will also occur after the completion of 4 courses. (Based on graduate policy as of this date, conditional status may be removed if the student achieves a grade of B or better in each of the courses taken).

Application Information
  • All documents, transcripts and other papers submitted for the admittance become property of the College and will not be returned.
  • A student is not officially admitted or rejected until the Director of Graduate Enrollment has notified him/her. Applicants are notified of their status in writing.
