MACC Application Procedures
Further information regarding the MACC degree program requirements, completion time, licensure and other details can be found on the degree program page here.
Admission to the MACC program is a two-phase process. Once all components of your application are received, the application is submitted to the Admissions Committee for review. After careful consideration, the applicant is approved or not approved for Phase Two of the process. If approved, applicants to the program are notified in writing to contact the Admissions Office to schedule a personal interview with the Director of the Counseling Program and/or the Associate Director.
Testing and interviews begin in November of each year and are scheduled on Tuesdays with rare exception. On this day, applicants will plan to be on campus in Charlotte to complete the personal interview, a group interview, and psychological testing. Time is allotted for a lunch break following the group interview.
Applicants are admitted to the MACC program in the Fall Semester only. There are two deadlines for the MACC program—October 31 and April 1. Applicants are reviewed in two groups for final admissions decisions: those who meet the October 31 deadline and are able to interview before January will be notified of the admissions decision very early and may be able to begin Biblical Studies and Christian Thought classes in the Spring semester. All others will be reviewed and receive final decisions in May and begin classes in the Fall.
Application materials must be received by the last deadline to be considered for admission in the Fall of that year. Any received later than April 1 will automatically be considered for admission for Fall of the next year. All applicants must complete testing and interviews as part of the admissions process. There will be a very limited number of slots available for interviews and testing after the April 1 deadline. Apply early.
Dual Degree Applicants
Students may also apply for a combined Master of Divinity (M.Div.) and Masters of Arts in Christian Counseling (MACC) dual degree program which reduces the total requirements of the two degrees by ten courses. In Section X. Personal Statement, please include any pertinent information about your desire to pursue the M.Div. degree along with the MACC degree. The Admissions Committee may approve your application on either or both degree programs. Please note that the application process for the dual program also includes psychological testing and interview as described above.
