While the Master of Science in Counseling and Human Services is not designed to fulfill licensure requirements in an individual state, the program can be used to partially fulfill licensure requirements. Students will need to fulfill additional specific requirements to become credentialed counselors.
Post University assists in researching and providing information regarding licensure; however, each state has different requirements for such licensure outside of the required education. Such state requirements may include licensure exams, background checks, certain work experience, and more. It is ultimately the responsibility of each student to manage their own licensure process and to ensure that all requirements are met in order for the student to obtain licensure. Post University does not speak on behalf of any licensing board or body and does not guarantee licensure. Requirements for licensure are subject to change without notice.

Post embeds micro-credentialing opportunities in programs to help build personal or professional skills to highlight on a resume or online profile.
