Counselor certification program

Become a Counselor

The State Board of Education adopted the following requirement for the Standard School Counselor Certificate in Chapter 19 of the Texas Administrative Code Section §239.20: All school counselors must hold, at a minimum, a 48-hour master's degree in counseling from an accredited institution of higher education that at the time was accredited or otherwise approved by an accrediting organization recognized by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. 

We are now partnering with the University of St. Thomas to offer a degree-seeking track for School Counselor. Please see here for UST information
