Our 60-credit-hour, New York State-approved, part-time, evening program can be completed in three years, and is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). The program fulfills the educational requirements for licensure as a Mental Health Counselor established by the New York State Education Department, Office of the Professions.
