COUNSELOR EDUCATION PROGRAM -- North Carolina Central University


We are glad that you are interested in NCCU Counseling!


You are invited to hear more about us out during one of our online "hangout" events...


The traditional deadline for all supporting application materials for a Fall admission is February 1.  Incomplete applications are not considered.  The program receives a high volume of applicants so it is critical that an applicant monitor their application through the University's application system.  The graduate office will indicate on the application system as to which elements have been received.  Questions about applications should be directed to the School of Graduate Studies (This email address is being protected from spambots.

To apply, one must have an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 2.75.  However, viable candidates tend to have undergraduate GPAs above 3.0.  Applicants should have official transcripts of all coursework sent electronically to This email address is being protected from spambots.

School of Graduate Studies
1801 Fayetteville Street
Taylor Education Building, Room 123

Applicants are required to submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores less than 5 years old.  The GRE is required of all applicants, unless you have already completed a graduate degree.  We do not accept the MAT.  Viable candidates have scores at or near the mean (50th percentile).

All of our programs are competitive --  there is an initial screening of the applicants.  After this initial review, the top applicants are invited for an interview with the admission committee.  At that interview, the committee seeks to determine whether the candidate is a good fit for the field of counseling and the program of study to which they have applied.  Successful applicants tend to demonstrate maturity, flexibility, a caring nature, and the ability to utilize feedback.  

After the interviews, decisions are made about admissions.  Candidates are notified about the admission committee’s decision within about three weeks of the interview.
