Once admitted to the program with Regular graduate status, and after registering for their first semester, students are assigned faculty advisors who help with preparing their programs of study.

Students who have not yet been assigned advisors can contact the department office at (216) 687-4612 or (216)687-4613.

Students must take CNS 620  the first counselor education course and must pass the course in order to continue in the program. Other counselor education professional courses may be taken simultaneously, but not before completing this course (see sequence below). It is important to note that, in accordance with CACREP accreditation, students are evaluated throughout the program on their academic performance, as well as their personal and professional development, which includes mental and emotional wellness. There also are courses in the program where students will be asked to engage in personal growth components that involve self-disclosure.

Sequence


CNS 620  is the first course taken in the professional counselor education sequence. Other counselor education professional courses may be taken simultaneously, but not before completing this course. If CNS 620  has not been completed, other courses that may be taken concurrently are: EDB 601 , ETE 501 , ALD 603 , CNS 604 , CNS 611 , and CNS 617 . Once CNS 620  has been completed, students may take courses other than those listed above. However, students are responsible for knowing and meeting the prerequisites for each course listed in the course descriptions in this Catalog. 

Exit Requirements


A culminating activity is required of all students. Students in the Community Agency Counseling Program may choose to meet this requirement by providing evidence that they have taken and passed the Ohio professional Counselor Licensure Exam (OHIO PCLE). Similarly, students in the School Counseling Program may choose to meet this requirement by providing evidence that they have taken and passed the Praxis II School Guidance & Counseling Specialty Exam (Test #20420) required for licensure and requesting that an official copy of their score report be sent to the College by designating Cleveland State University (Institutional Code 1221) as a Score Recipient when completing Item #12 on the registration form. While the Praxis II exam may be taken at any time, students are encouraged to register for the test during their last year in the program. Registration materials are available online at www.ets.org/praxis or can also be obtained at Cleveland State University’s Counseling & Testing Center (Rhodes Tower, Room 1237). Other options for meeting the exit requirement include successful completion of a comprehensive exam, thesis, or project— details of which can be obtained from the Department of Counseling, Administration, Supervision, and Adult Learning and Development (RT 1419, 216-687-4612). Students who elect to meet the exit requirement by taking a comprehensive exam and fail it, may retake the exam one time and have one year in which to do so.
