School Counseling Certificate Admission Requirements

Students may earn the School Counseling Certification through either the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program (while earning teaching certification in another area) or the Master of Science in Counseling Psychology (MSCP) program. Please see the MAT and MSCP web-sites for information about admission to each of the programs.

In addition to program specific admissions requirements, the requirements for admission to the School Counseling Certification program include the following:
  • A GPA of 3.0 from a regionally accredited college or university*
  • At least 6 credit hours of college level mathematics
  • At least 3 credit hours of English Composition and 3 hours of English Literature (British or American Literature)
  • Passing scores on the PRAXIS I Pre-Professional skills tests (reading, writing, mathematics)
  • Admission essay
  • Two letters of recommendation
* Alternative - GPA of 2.8 and qualifying scores on the PRAXIS I Pre-Professional skills tests and a combined SAT score of 1050 with no score lower than 500.

Students completing the teaching program would receive their Master of Arts in Teaching from Chatham and their school counseling certification (elementary, secondary, or dual K-12 certification) from the PA Department of Education.

Students choosing to complete the psychology program would receive their Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Chatham and their school counseling certification (elementary, secondary, or dual K-12 certification) from the PA Department of Education. These students also have the option to pursue their license as a professional counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania.

Additionally, students who already hold a masters degree in a related field may still pursue School Counseling Certification at Chatham University. Students applying for School Counseling Certification must meet the same admissions requirements described above. In addition, a thorough transcript review will be done in order to determine what courses must be completed in order to earn the School Counseling Certificate.
