Licensure Disclosure: M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling for Clinical Mental Health Counselors
Gallaudet University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on
Higher Education (MSCHE) and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a Title IV approved
In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education and the District of
Columbia Higher Education Licensure Commission (HELC) requirements for
participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), Gallaudet University provides information pertaining to this program
and clinical mental health counselor licensure within each of the U.S. states and
This program is designed to meet the educational requirements for
clinical mental health counseling licensure in the District of Columbia. If your intent is to secure
licensure outside of Washington, D.C., then BEFORE beginning Gallaudet University’s program, use the
drop-down list below and select the state or territory in which licensure is intended. This will
help you determine whether Gallaudet has obtained confirmation from the state or territory to
formally identify whether the Gallaudet M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program meets,
does not meet or cannot be confirmed as meeting the educational requirements for licensure.
Simply stated, when it comes to licensure requirements, not all states
and territories recognize educational programs from other states and territories in the same manner.
Thus, if it is identified that the program “cannot be confirmed as meeting” the educational
requirements for licensure, it may nevertheless meet all or a portion of the educational
requirements. So in this instance, we recommend contacting the licensing agency directly for
confirmation, before beginning the Gallaudet University program.
Additionally, since state and territory regulations can change, should
you pursue the Gallaudet University program, we recommend that you regularly check licensure
requirements throughout your studies to ensure ongoing eligibility.
To help facilitate this, direct links to licensing agencies have been
provided wherever possible. Please review
the dropdown by state.
