CACREP > CACREP Connection: Spring 2012 Connection
CACREP gives our program an automatic platform for reputability and integrity. Confirming our accreditation with CACREP is often the first inquisition of perspective students. We are proud to maintain and surpass these standards that call our program, faculty, and students forward in the field of counseling. A faculty member at Regis University
I am currently a teacher and have to listen to the issues/problem/questions and then refer them to a counselor. The only time I really know the outcome is if I'm updated because I have to be or if a student thanks me for moving them to the right person. I am really looking forward to being on the other side of the coin. I also look forward to the teaching aspect from the counseling side. It is nice that times have changed for school counselors and we are afforded more opportunities to do this. Student at Loyola College in Maryland

Click here to see our list of programs in the application process. Please note that currently accredited programs who are in the reapplication process will only show as accredited. To verify that the program has applied for reaccreditation, contact the office.
CACREP also maintains a list of programs who were once accredited, but are no longer accredited, because they have been denied, withdrawn, program has been closed, or has been re-accredited under a new program area title based on updated Standards.
Because CACREP programs are converting from Community Counseling and Mental Health Counseling to Clinical Mental Health Counseling, the start date in the Directory may not represent when the program first received CACREP accreditation. Please click on the program "Details" button and read the history entry at the bottom of the screen.
Please note that not all programs in a department may be accredited.
If your search does not return any programs, try broadening your search criteria.
All CACREP doctoral programs are accredited under the program title COUNSELOR EDUCATION AND SUPERVISION. Within that, many specialty areas are possible, depending on the program. Please contact the program directly to find out what is offered.
Counselor licensure and certification regulations vary widely by state. Prospective students should check with the appropriate state credentialing body to identify specific requirements. Graduation from a CACREP accredited program does not guarantee eligibility for licensure or certification in all states; however, graduates of CACREP accredited programs generally meet most states’ educational eligibility requirements for seeking a practice credential. In addition, CACREP graduates are immediately eligible to obtain national certification from the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) upon passing the National Counselor Examination.

Although Counselor Education Programs outside of the US are welcomed to apply for accreditation under the CACREP Standards, they were really created to train counselors to work in the Unites States. CACREP also runs a program called the International Registry of Counsellor Education Programs (IRCEP) that provides an approval process for international programs. This is not the same as CACREP accreditation, but it is a quality review process that involves standards.
