Graduate Certificate in Professional Counseling

The Graduate Certificate in Professional Counseling is an 18-credit program designed for students who are completing or have completed a CACREP-accredited Master’s degree in counseling and are in need of additional hours to complete the educational requirements of the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensure in NJ. Up to six credits may be waived if students completed PC 505/EDC 505 and/or PC 525/EDC 530 as part of their CACREP-accredited Master’s degree.

The Graduate Certificate allows students to pattern their choice of free elective courses to complete courses with a common theme about specialized areas of counseling, such as addictions counseling, counseling children and adolescents, couples and family counseling, and others.

Gainful Employment

The U.S. Department of Education requires that we disclose certain information about academic programs that do not lead to a degree (e.g., certificate programs) but that prepare a student for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. The Graduate Certificate in Professional Counseling at Monmouth University is defined as a gainful employment program. You can review the required disclosures. Should you require additional information about these gainful employment disclosures, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
