CACREP Site Visit: February 2-4, 2022

Last academic year, the NCCU Counseling Program submitted a Self-Study for re-accreditation to CACREP.  CACREP completed their initial review of our Self-Study and approved us for a site visit this academic year.  Our site visit will be a virtual site visit - and will take place February 2-4, 2022

The purposes of a site visit are to (1) validate the Self-Study document presented to CACREP, and (2) gain an understanding of the aspects of the program that cannot be evaluated fully through a review of the Self-Study document submitted by the institution.

Please note that faculty and staff will be fairly busing during the time period of the site visit, and you may be asked to help by meeting with select members of the site visit team.  


CPCE Reminder

Are you graduating in Fall 2022 and have not completed the CPCE (Counselor Preparation Comprehensive exam)? A passing score on the CPCE (commonly called comps) is required for graduation.  
Go to>students>Comprehensive Exam>CPCE registration interest and all the information you need is provided, including a Doodle survey to begin the process.  Why complete the Doodle survey?  So Dr. Barrow knows how to endorse you for testing because you can take the CPCE on campus, close to home or even at home.

Pursuing a Second Degree

For students who are graduating Spring 2022 or later, you MUST complete a minimum of 18 semester hours above and beyond your original plan of study in order to receive a second degree.  There are very specific courses that must be completed to receive a second degree and these are specified on this page:

If you are pursuing two degrees, make sure that you have completed the new form that ensures the University is aware of your intention to pursue two degrees at the same time.  This form is new as of fall 2021.  It can be found in the forms area of the student website ("Adding a Second Major").

This form is completed and sent to your advisor for processing.  Once the form has been processed, you should see both degree programs on your transcript in BANNER.

Please note that your second internship must consist of a 600-hour placement.  In other words, students receiving a second degree will complete a second 600-hour internship placement (600 hours for their first major, 600 hours for their second major).

Please speak with your advisor if you have any questions.
