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...
To apply, one must have an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 2.5. However, viable candidates tend to have undergraduate GPAs above 3.0. Applicants should have official transcripts of all coursework mailed to the School of Education Graduate Office, 700 Cecil Street, Durham, NC 27707.
All applicants are required to submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores less than 5 years old. The GRE is required of all applicants, regardless of previous graduate work. We do not accept the MAT. Viable candidates have scores at or near the mean (50th percentile).
All of our programs are very 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.
