Graduates of the UNG counseling program are eligible for one or more state and national credentials.
Because the CMHC program is CACREP-approved, all fully enrolled students can take the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE) during their last semester of the program. The NCE is the first step toward becoming a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Georgia (and many other states). The NCC credential is a prerequisite for several specialty certifications offered by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC), including school counseling, clinical mental health counseling, addictions counseling, and clinical supervision.
