If a prospective master's student's application demonstrates potential, faculty members will invite her or him to an on-campus interview. During the interview, students will gain more information about the Counselor Education Program, complete a writing exercise, participate in a role play activity, and meet with current students. After the interview, faculty members will make admissions and advising recommendations to the Graduate School, and students will be notified of their status.
