Counselor Education Student Handbook
This handbook is provided to students and applicants for their general information and guidance only. It does not constitute a contract; either expressed or implied, and is subject to revision at the University’s discretion.
This handbook is designed to provide information regarding the Counseling Program at Gallaudet University. The Counseling Programs are offered through the School of Human Services and Sciences. In addition to courses within this department, students are also able to enhance their experience by taking courses within other departments at Gallaudet.
Since its founding in 1864, Gallaudet University (GU) has offered a unique, American Sign Language and English bilingual learning environment for faculty, students, and staff. The University’s Board of Trustees affirmed by adopting a new mission that fosters an intentional, inclusive and supportive environment in 2007. The counseling program embraces the bilingual mission of the institution.
Our program is informed by research and shaped by the needs of the communities and schools who require the services of professional counselors. A strong theoretical thread runs through the core courses and the advanced courses and is evident in the particular orientations of our faculty in such areas of specialization as assessment, consultation, development, family and marriage counseling, play therapy, group work, and multicultural counseling as these areas relate to counseling deaf people. Theory also drives skill development with an initial exposure to the cornerstones of the counseling relationship followed by exposure to skills and intervention techniques important to major theories of counseling.
The experiential thread begins in the first summer, as students interact with counselors from a variety of settings and learn about counseling on communities and schools. In their subsequent coursework, they add depth and breadth by engaging in experiences that allow them to practice individual and group counseling skills with deaf people from diverse populations. These experiences culminate in the Practicum and Internship, which are designed to provide supervised professional experiences for the counselor-in-training in schools and agency settings.

(Approved by the Board of Trustees, May 2009)
Counselor Education Student Recruitment Policy
The graduate program in counselor education believes that the needs of a diverse society can only be met by encouraging diversity in the counseling professions. Thus, the program actively recruits students who represent a variety of cultures, ethnicities, races, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic classes. Furthermore, consistent with our mission, we aim to recruit students who will be able to provide counseling services to diverse students in the deaf community. Thus, we prioritize the recruitment of American Sign Language (ASL) fluent students. Counselor education faculty recruit students by speaking to undergraduate classes and student organizations. They also meet with personnel in organizations and schools as part of the outreach program to recruit diverse students. Faculty attend conferences to network with other professionals who may assist us in recruiting students.
The Counselor Education Program faculty seeks to admit only those who are personally and academically prepared to complete the master’s degree. Within these parameters, the faculty is committed to admitting students who represent diverse backgrounds and/or who have special abilities (i.e. bilingual competence) to serve a diverse population as counselors.
Gallaudet uses a cohort model. We have a deadline for applications of February 1st each year. Subsequently, qualified candidates are invited to interviews in February, and accepted applicants are expected to begin with their first residency in the summer.
Admission to the program is competitive and is based on the criteria listed below. In order to be matriculated, the student must:
*Students from certain states may require specific courses to become licensed or certified. While faculty will work to find all licensing requirements, students are encouraged to become familiar with credentialing requirements in their home states.
Background Checks and Fingerprinting
Depending on your state, some school districts and some clinical placements require candidates to be fingerprinted prior to the start of your field work; students may be required to pay the cost of the fingerprinting. Each site supervisor retains the right to withdraw a placement if the fingerprinting indicates information that is problematic for the site. In addition, some placements also mandate drug testing prior to interactions with students or clients. Faculty in the counselor education program should be informed of any concerns you may have with regard to your background, and will assist you in finding appropriate field placements. However, counselor education faculty will not allow candidates who are currently impaired to engage in a field placement course. Working as an impaired counselor is a violation of the ethical code.
Counselors are skilled professionals who are trained to enable others to gain an understanding of their lives, make decisions, resolve problems, and be active. While the primary duty of the Counselor is to the individual, their responsibilities extend beyond the individual client to parents, schools, their community, and to the counseling profession. The school counseling major prepares students to work as counselors serving deaf students in a variety of settings including public schools and schools for the deaf. Graduates are also prepared to engage in crisis intervention. Graduates of the clinical specialization are prepared to work in a variety of human service settings, including mental health centers, substance abuse, residential programs, and other agencies offering counseling services.
The Gallaudet counseling programs are aligned with CACREP (Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs) standards. CACREP is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation (COPA). We were accredited by CACREP until the reorganization of the programs in 2022. We plan to remain aligned with CACREP standards are apply for accreditation again at our first available opportunity. Our education programs are accredited national by CAEP. Accreditation in the District of Columbia is also maintained.
All full-time faculty have doctoral degrees in counselor education or closely related fields. In addition, part time faculty hold a minimum of a master’s degree in their respective field. Part-time faculty from other departments on campus and from the professional community at large provide our students with a wide variety of theoretical and experiential perspectives regarding the role of professional counselors.
The Counseling program prepares graduates to be multiculturally competent professional counselors, able to work skillfully with deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing clients of diverse backgrounds in a variety of settings. Our training models emphasize the development of cultural self-awareness, sensitivity, knowledge, and skills essential to becoming effective and ethical practitioners who are able to influence individual, group, organizational and systemic changes that promote health and well being for all persons in the context of social justice and multiculturalism. Faculty members are committed to promoting interpersonal values which support our professional relations with others. These values include compassion, self-awareness, genuineness, commitment to social justice, and an authentic appreciation of diversity. [Revised Feb. ‘09]

The former CACREP-accredited counseling programs suspended admissions in 2019. We are now reopened as a low residency program and we plan to stay aligned with CACREP standards until we are able to reapply for CACREP accreditation in the fall of 2024.
Matriculated students in the Counseling programs are urged to consider affiliation with the professional association serving the counseling profession, e.g., the American Counseling Association (ACA), the American School Counseling Association (ASCA). Benefits of membership include receiving the professional journal(s) published by ACA, identification with current professional issues, opportunity to attend state, regional and national meetings, and professional liability insurance. Student membership in ACA is available at a reduced membership cost. Applications require a faculty member endorsement. Students will also be encouraged to join the state branch of ACA from their respective states. A copy of the student’s liability insurance form must be presented to the Practicum or Internship faculty supervisor for inclusion in the student’s clinical folder.
When a student is admitted into the Counseling Program, he or she is assigned an advisor. It is the student’s responsibility to make regular contact (usually once a semester) with his or her advisor regarding courses to be taken and overall progress in the program. Among the advisor’s responsibilities are the following:
An orientation meeting for new students is held with each cohort on the first day of our residency, during the first class meeting.
Graduate students at Gallaudet must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average to be in good standing. Credit will not be awarded for course grades below a B. Students must retake the course. All grades are calculated in the cumulative GPA.
The Counseling faculty meets regularly to evaluate the progress of each matriculated student. The Program uses the Fitness to Practice Instrument to gauge professional dispositions (See below). The student’s advisor is responsible for collecting relevant feedback from the faculty about a particular student. When a student’s progress is not satisfactory, based either on academic criteria or professional criteria unrelated to academic performance, she or he may be placed on probation. In this event, the following process will occur:
FITNESS TO PRACTICE
The Counselor Education Program implemented a Fitness to Practice (FTP) policy in the summer of 2022. The FTP is designed to ensure that candidates are not impaired and are prepared for field placement. The FTP policy is an addendum to this handbook and should be reviewed with your advisor. (See Appendix A)
If a student believes that he or she has been treated unfairly, either in a particular course or as a result of the formal evaluation process, it is the student’s right to initiate a grievance process.Gallaudet maintains an office for Student Grievances.
The Graduate Counselor Education Program accepts only graduate level courses that meet Program curriculum requirements. Course waivers are limited in number and done under careful advisement.
All students in the program complete a practicum of at least 100 hours and an internship of at least 600 hours. We strongly advise students to complete 9 credits of clinical instruction (Practicum and Internship). However, a small percentage of students, with the consent of the counseling faculty, take 6 or 12 credits to complete the required number of clinical hours. Please note that students must have flexibility to complete the field experiences at an approved site during the field work portion of their training. Students who wish to do field work at their place of employment should speak with their faculty advisor to obtain approval.
Early in the program, students must contract to complete a full-time or a part-time
Internship, i.e., whether the Internship is to be completed in three (3) credit hours or six
(6). It is crucial that students understand that contracting for one semester means that both the total 600-hour requirement and the 240-hour direct service requirement must be fulfilled in one semester. This also means that any Practicum or Internship experience that is contracted over a summer cannot occur during a regularly scheduled university semester. Summer clinical experiences usually need to extend over a three (3) month period and be approved by a faculty supervisor.
It is the faculty’s prerogative to work with the field supervisor and determine if a student is ready to advance to Internship. Faculty may require any student to repeat Practicum if it is the faculty’s judgment that this is in the student’s best interest.
Prior to entering field placement, all students must take the ASL-PI and receive a passing score of 2 or higher. Students who do not receive a 2 will not be allowed to enter field work.
Didactic instruction and pre-practicum are intended to prepare the student to be placed in a counseling setting (school or agency) that matches the student’s career objectives. The Field Placement Coordinator assists all students in obtaining both practicum and internship placements. The Coordinator also acts as a liaison between the students and site supervisors to assist with initial and evaluation paperwork required by the Program.
the application of counseling, consultation, or human development skills.” Ten (10)
of the forty (40) direct hours must consist of group counseling.
audio/video recordings and/or live supervision of students’ interactions with
other courses in terms of the amount of time required to prepare adequately for the experience. At the time of matriculation into the program, when a student first meets with his or her advisor, it would be appropriate to begin planning for the approximate time of Practicum. Later, after the student has taken several prerequisite courses, more deliberate planning should begin to take place. Practicum proposals are distributed in classes, one year prior to Practicum. Students should work with the Field Placement Coordinator one semester prior to beginning Practicum. Be aware that:
Staff planning takes place a few months before the beginning of each semester.
Please note that students must have flexibility to complete the field experiences at an approved site during the fieldwork portion of their training.
documentation of supervisor training prior to the start of practicum.
Following successful completion of the counseling Practicum, students must complete a counseling internship in their specialization area. This internship is traditionally two semesters.
COURSE REQUIREMENTS: There are five (5) requirements for Internship that are necessary to consider in identifying an appropriate site.
Students registering for their final course in the program should apply for graduation. It is the student’s responsibility to submit appropriate forms prior to the deadline set by the University. Please keep a close eye on your Gallaudet email as this information is shared in your final year.

Students receiving financial assistance under the federal supported Title IV Programs must comply with the following criteria to be eligible for such assistance.
Our program maintains one graduate assistant to support our program. Several graduate assistantships are available to matriculated graduate students who live in the DC metro area. Students should see their advisor who will address questions.
Students who successfully complete all requirements for the master’s degree in will receive formal endorsement in their area of specialization by the faculty of the training program. Formal endorsement includes recommendation for state certification and employment for those students successfully completing the program in school counseling, or recommendation for employment as a clinical counselor in a setting consistent with the training provided by the counseling program. Students will receive formal program endorsement only in that program for which they have met training requirements. Successful completion of a program means the completion of all didactic and experiential coursework including practicum and internship and marked by performance sufficient to ensure that the candidate possesses the skills and competencies necessary for ethical provision of services to clients in the setting for which endorsement is made. Completion of all requirements means that the candidate has completed the 60 credit master’s Degree as required by CACREP. Candidates must maintain a 3.0 (B) average.
SCHOOL COUNSELOR CERTIFICATION
Students in the school counseling program may apply for certification as a school counselor, grades K-12, depending on the requirements of the state. Students who are seeking school counseling certification should obtain advisement early in the program.
Every state has their own requirements for licensure. In general, most states require successful completion of 60 graduate semester hours in the discipline of professional counseling at a regionally accredited institution of higher education, which includes the core and clinical curriculum of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). At least 42 of the graduate credits must be earned from a regionally accredited institution with a major in professional counseling.
The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) is an independent, not-for-profit organization whose primary purposes are to establish and monitor a national certification system, to identify to professionals and the public those counselors who have voluntarily sought and obtained generic counselor certification, and to maintain a registry of these counselors. This process grants recognition to counselors who have met predetermined NBCC standards in their training, experience, and performance on the National Counselor Examination. A counselor who is certified by the NBCC uses the designation NCC, National Certified Counselor.
Criteria for Certification as an NCC:
NCC’s are certified for a period of five years. In order to be re-certified at the conclusion of the five-year cycle the counselor must demonstrate completion of 100 contact clock hours of approved continuing education or re-examination as well as adhere to the NBCC Code of Ethics in professional practice.
Specializations Offered (Elective Courses)
Clinical graduates are likely to be more marketable if they graduate with a clinical specialization. Students on the clinical track are required to take 55 credits and have 6 credits open for specialization. Gallaudet is in the process of developing specializations. Faculty has specializations in grief counseling, play therapy, crisis/trauma counseling, addictions, and other areas of specialty.
Assessments and Related Fees
There may be fees that are passed along to students which are not covered by the university. These include testing fees, documentation fees, and evaluation fees for the ASL-PI. All students must receive a 2 or better on the ASL-PI to enter field placement.

FITNESS TO PRACTICE POLICY AND PROCEDURES
As part of meeting the program objectives set forth in the Department of Counseling Program Student Handbooks and Graduate Catalog, students are expected to conduct themselves in an ethical, responsible, and professional manner. This conduct is evaluated through the Fitness to Practice (FTP) policy as an element of students’ academic performance. The purpose of the FTP review process is to regularly monitor students’ professional and personal development (CACREP, 2001) to ensure students demonstrate appropriate progress towards developing the necessary behaviors, attitudes, and professional competencies to practice as a counselor-in- training. Student progress is routinely monitored and discussed during faculty meetings, in consultation with other faculty members and field supervisors.
At the onset of their academic program, students are directed to review these standards and seek clarification when needed.
In order to successfully complete the program and be endorsed for any relevant certifications or licensure, students must demonstrate academic performance meeting
or exceeding department standards in all settings, including classes, advising sessions, clinical sites, and all verbal and written communication, including: 1. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better and present grades of a C or higher in all required courses, 2. Demonstrate fitness in their interactions with others as measured on the Fitness to Practice Standards, which include the following competencies: 1. Follows ethical and legal considerations 2. Displays multicultural competence 3. Open to new ideas 4. Aware of own impact on others 5. Responsive, adaptable, and cooperative 6. Receptive to and uses feedback 7. Responds to conflict appropriately 8. Accepts personal responsibility 9. Expresses feelings effectively and appropriately 10. Dependable in meeting obligations, and 3. Conforms to the codes of ethics of professional associations in counseling and all related national and state licensure and certification boards.
The FTP Evaluation Process: Students’ competence is evaluated using the Fitness to Practice Standards and documented with the FTP Evaluation Form. All students will be reviewed by individual faculty using the Fitness to Practice Standards during Introduction to Community or School Counseling (ED 585 or EPY 618), Counseling Skills (EPY 604 and EPY 605), Practicum (EPY 610 and EPY 611), and as necessary throughout the program. Admission to the program does not guarantee fitness to remain in the program. In addition, a FTP review may be initiated on any student at any time if a faculty member, staff, course instructor, program advisor or field supervisor believes the student has displayed behavior which suggests the student does not possess sufficient competency on one or more FTP criteria. Faculty also may initiate a FTP review at any time for: a. Students who engage in illegal or unethical behaviors, b. Students who present a threat to the wellbeing of others, or c. Students who violate the Gallaudet Student Code of Conduct, any other applicable Gallaudet policies or procedures, or any other Gallaudet Counselor Education policies or procedures. In such cases, depending upon the circumstances, the fitness to practice process may result in the student being dismissed from the Counselor Education program without the opportunity for remediation. However, students should be aware that faculty in the Counselor Education program will make strong efforts to remediate students who show desire and/or potential to improve and correct the competency deficit(s).
Faculty members, staff, course instructors, program advisors, and field supervisors may evaluate all students according to these standards. Students will have the opportunity to participate and respond at each step of the FTP process.
Performance on the FTP standards will be rated on a scale of 0 (unacceptable) to 1 (acceptable) as described in the Fitness to Practice Standards. A rating of 1 on all FTP standards will indicate competence. The FTP Evaluation Form then will be shared with the student and a copy placed in the student’s file. A rating of 0 on any of the FTP standards will initiate the following procedure:
(1) The student will be contacted to schedule a meeting to review the FTP Evaluation Form. The meeting will be held with the issuing faculty member, unless the FTP process was initiated because the student engaged in illegal or unethical activities, presented a threat to the wellbeing of others or violated the Student Code of Conduct or the Handbook of Operating Procedures (in which case, the meeting will be held with a review committee comprised of faculty, as outlined in Step 3 below).
The student has five business days to respond to the request to schedule a meeting. If the student does not respond by the close of business on the fifth business day, the matter will proceed to step 3 below.
(2) At the meeting, the issuing faculty will review the FTP Evaluation Form with the student and discuss a remediation plan. Within fifteen business days after the meeting, the issuing faculty will provide a final copy of the remediation plan (incorporating any changes agreed upon at the meeting) to the student for review and signature. The student will have ten business days to review, sign, and return the remediation plan. Failure of the student to sign and/or return the remediation plan by the close of business on the tenth business day will not impede the process and may be considered during the fitness to practice process. Faculty may place an academic hold on course registration for students do not resolve concerns using the FTP process.
The remediation plan may include 1. Specific competency(ies) from the Fitness to Practice Standards which require(s) remediation, 2. Specific recommendations to achieve remediation, 3. Specific requirements to demonstrate remediation efforts have been successful, and 4. A specific deadline for subsequent monitoring to evaluate progress. Both the student and issuing faculty may retain copies of the signed FTP Evaluation Form and remediation plan and copies will be placed in the student’s folder. At any time during the remediation process, the issuing faculty member may refer the student to a faculty review committee.
(3) A faculty review committee will be convened if: a. The FTP process was initiated because the student engaged in illegal or unethical activities, presented a threat to the wellbeing of others, or violated the Student Code of Conduct or the Handbook of Operating Procedures, b. A student fails to respond to the issuing faculty’s request to schedule a meeting to review the FTP Evaluation Form, c. A student fails to show reasonable progress in the remediation plan, or d. A student receives more than one FTP Evaluation Form rated 0 during his or her Program of Study. The committee will be comprised of faculty in Education and Educational Psychology, appointed by the Department Chair. The student will be required to meet with the faculty review committee in accordance with the procedures described in #1 and #2 above. The faculty review committee may consult with any of the full faculty, including adjunct faculty, regarding the development of alternative remedial strategies and/or evaluation of the student’s fitness for continuation in the Counselor Education program.
The faculty review committee will monitor the student’s progress on the remediation plan. If at any time the student is determined not to be making satisfactory progress, the faculty review committee may either modify the remediation plan or dismiss the student from the program.
(4) All faculty review committee decisions for a student’s dismissal from the Counselor Education program will be forwarded to the School Director. The school director will forward the committee’s decision to the Dean of the School. The student may appeal the committee’s decision to the appropriate authorities.
