The Professional Counseling Program received 100 new applications for the fall 2017, spring 2018, and summer 2018 semesters. There were 33 Clinical Mental Health Counseling and 8 School Counseling graduates from the UHV Professional Counseling Program. Our graduates consistently achieved high pass rates on licensing and certification examinations. Our October 2017 (n = 8) and April 2018 (n = 17) National Counselor Examination (NCE) pass rate was 88%. The pass rate for the TExES 152 (n = 7) was 100%. The NCE is required for licensure and the TExES 152 is required for school counselor certification in Texas.
Students are admitted to the Professional Counseling program as either full-time or part-time. The following percentages detail the average completion rates from each of the program concentrations. The expected graduation time frame is 3-5 years depending on full time or part time graduate student status. Of those enrolled in the program, 64.5% graduated from the CMHC concentration and 57.1% from the School Counseling concentration within 3 years (on-time) of starting the program.
Each graduate from the Professional Counseling Program completes a survey that details his or her employment within the counseling field. Per self-report from students graduating this past year, 85% of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling students report finding a position within the counseling field. Our students are able to successfully find employment in the Houston metro area, Victoria, and throughout Texas.
