Dear NCCU Counseling Students,
We hope that you are well, doing all that you can to remain healthy and well – and doing your part to keep others healthy and well. Information and understanding about COVID-19 seems to change on a daily basis.
The NCCU Counselor Education faculty met virtually today – and collectively want to wish you well and offer support to you in any way that we can. Please reach out to your adviser, if you wish, to let them know how you are doing. Please let us know if there is anything that you need.

Dear Students and Site Supervisors,
Within the last two weeks, the Counselor Education faculty have met multiple times. As North Carolina Central University has transitioned to fully online instruction during this time, our primary concern has been related to students who are currently completing their clinical placements (i.e., Practicum and Internship). We have been concerned about the health and safety of our students, their families, and their clients/students.
We have paid attention to messages and statements distributed by both our institution and our accrediting body (CACREP). We initially wanted students to have the freedom to choose whether or not they continued at their placement site, if it was open.
As time has passed and more information about the spread of the coronavirus has been documented, our conversations as a faculty have evolved. We recognize that the steps recommended to slow down the progression of the spread (and keep vulnerable populations safe) are not in alignment with continuing in a physical placement at a practicum or internship site.
The Counselor Education Program faculty voted to remove students from their physical placement sites, effective Friday, March 27, 2020 at 5:00pm EDT. Students can opt to remove themselves earlier, if desired. In addition, students should follow all directives issued by their local municipalities, counties, or states regarding social distancing, staying at home, sheltering, or quarantining. Although students may no longer be physically present at their placement site, they may continue to accrue direct and indirect hours.
