好消息! The CMHC program is scheduled for a CACREP site visit in October 2023. We hope to receive word on CACREP status in spring 2024. We are working diligently to offer you a CACREP-approved CMHC program. 我们将随时为您提供最新消息! 


The School 咨询 Option 2 Students are NO LONGER required to complete the Praxis Core Exam! 万岁! 
实习科目考试 All School 咨询 Students (Options 1 & 2)均需通过 实践辅导科目考试#5422 毕业. 请 not register for #5421, as it is no longer accepted for endorsement.
CPCE All CMHC students are required to pass the CPCE before graduating. Changes in the CPCE policies require you to take this exam the semester before graduating, as you are given only one opportunity per semester to pass the exam. 所以,为了安全起见...take it the first semester of your Internship! 
酒井LMS内容 If you previously enrolled in classes utilizing SAKAI (our LMS before Canvas), 请取回任何文件(如.e., KPI assignments or syllabi) you wish to retain. The SAKAI contract will end by June 2024, ending any access to former courses. Contact your advisor should you have any questions.
