Dr. Kelly King
We are sorry to announce that Dr. Kelly King will be finishing her time as a faculty member at NCCU at the end of the dual summer term. She would like to deliver the following message to our students:
I have had the pleasure to teach, supervise, advise, and get to know many of you over the years. Because of these relationships and what they mean to me, I want to share some more information about where I am headed and say a "proper" (virtual) goodbye. The next stop in my career is to continue teaching at the University of California Davis. The reason for the change is a personal one: my partner and I will be able to live in the same city and work at the same university. I am very excited to make this transition. I also have heartache about leaving NCCU. The people in our program...YOU!!...have made my time at Central such a joy. I will carry fond memories with me and speak proudly of our program. Inspired by Dr. Scott, check out my goodbye TikTok:
Wrapping Up Another School Year! A Note from the Department Chair
As our summer gets started, I hope that you will take some time to rest and relax, if you are able to do so. This year, we have all spent a great deal of time looking at our screens. It is time to "unplug" for a little while - both students and faculty.
If you are seeking information about something related to our Program, a lot of what you may be interested in can be found on our website. If you have questions that are not addressed on the site, please be patient during the break between semesters. Some faculty teach during the summer, and some do not. Most faculty use the summer to focus on their research and writing.
If a faculty member is not teaching during the summer, I would ask that you allow them to have some space and time to focus on their work and wellness this summer (and I hope that you will do the same). We will be back at "full-speed" again when school starts in August.

Chair, Department of Allied Professions
FYI: Next year, we will be known as the "Department of Counseling and Higher Education"
Summer and Fall Semesters
Please be aware that there are synchronous and asynchronous course listings both this summer and next fall.
- Synchronous: All students are online at the same time.
- Asynchronous: Students do not have to be online at the same time.
If a class is synchronous, there will be a specific day and time listed on BANNER. Please pay attention to this information when registering. If you register for a synchronous course, you are required to be present during each and every class day and time. Synchronous classes meet every week on the same day at the same time. If you cannot commit to the class meeting times, please do not register for the course. You will need to develop a different plan with your advisor.
Registration and Overrides
Any communication regarding registration or course overrides should be through your advisor. Please do not send any communication to Ms. Joyner about registration. Your advisor should be the only person to communicate with Ms. Joyner regarding course registration.

Pursuing a Second Degree - Changes Ahead
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: http://www.nccucounseling.com/student2/index.php/advising/dual-major
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.
