Please be advised that in accordance with state and federal regulations, NSU is required to provide the following information to applicants and students completing their coursework outside of the state of Florida, including field experiences (e.g. internships, practicums, clinical placements), when their program of study customarily leads to professional licensure.
Nova Southeastern University, College of Psychology, Master of Counseling, Clinical Mental Health Counseling Concentration meets the educational degree completion requirements for licensure in the state of Florida as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), and certification requirements for the National Certified Counselor (NCC) credential from the National Board for Certified Counselors. Requirements for professional licensure and certification can vary drastically by state. At this time, the College of Psychology cannot confirm whether its Master of Science in Counseling degree meets all of the educational, licensure, and certification requirements in all states. Further, these requirements can change frequently and often without notice.
Several states have unique licensing requirements, and thus this information is subject to change without notice. Please note that Illinois and New York do not permit internship placements for students enrolled in online programs. Students seeking licensure in California and Ohio may be required to complete an additional course per those state's specific statutes. Please note that North Carolina, Kentucky, Utah, Arkansas, Missouri, and New Hampshire accept only CACREP-accredited degrees for licensure currently or by 2022. In December 2018, NSU submitted its application for CACREP accreditation. We advise you to contact your state licensing and certification body to ensure the degree will meet requirements for licensure in the state in which you seek to be licensed. For licensing board contact information and approval status, please see http://www.nbcc.org/Search/StateBoardDirectory.
