Students who are enrolled in the M.S. in School Counseling program are eligible to apply for candidacy after they have completed 12 hours of coursework. In reviewing the application, candidate status will be awarded if the faculty determines the student has met the candidacy requirements and has the ability to become a successful counselor. Husson reserves the right to require additional experiences if faculty become aware of issues at any time during the student's academic program which could hinder successful completion of the degree program.
