The coursework of the MACC-CMH degree is designed to meet the curriculum requirements outlined by the North Carolina Board of Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors (NCBLCMHC) and of the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc. (NBCC). Additionally, students may choose from elective courses offered in the MACC curriculum that will meet curricular requirements for licensure in many states, including all the states contiguous to North Carolina. Students are eligible to take the National Counselor’s Exam (NCE) during their last semester in the program. Students work with an advisor to ensure that their coursework will meet the requirements for their chosen state of licensure.
While the school makes every effort to ensure that the program meets licensure requirements in North and South Carolina, licensure and certification requirements vary by state. The school’s responsibility is to provide an opportunity to earn a degree and to provide guidance to students regarding unique licensure requirements in states other than North and South Carolina. However, the student is responsible to contact the appropriate licensure board following graduation and to fulfill the post-graduate requirements required for licensure as a mental health professional.
Hours accumulated from the practicum and internship experience, which meet the clinical training requirements for the MACC degree, may or may not meet the requirements for licensure or certification in some states. The MACC program is committed to providing guidance to students so that they can meet the clinical experience requirements in their given state.
Scholarships and financial assistance are available.
