The Career Counseling Program, Mental Health Counseling Program, and School Counseling Program at Southeast Missouri State University are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). These programs are accredited through the eight-year accreditation cycle ending October 31, 2021.
Students graduating from a CACREP program are assured a quality educational experience. Counseling students can be certified counselors by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) once they have passed the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE). As a result of the accreditation, the NCE is administered on the Southeast campus.
