Counseling Admissions Requirements

M.S. in School Counseling Program

The graduate program in school counseling adheres to the cohort concept. Applicants are accepted for a program of study beginning with either the summer or fall semester. Applicants for admission to the school counseling program may enter from a variety of backgrounds. Persons engaged in the education and helping professions such as those in schools, social agencies, hospitals, court settings, and community-action programs are encouraged to apply. In addition, eligible for admission are those who have earned bachelors or master’s degrees as majors in psychology, sociology, law or the related behavioral sciences.

To be considered for admission to NYIT's Masters of Science in School Counseling Program applicants must:

  • possess a bachelor’s degree (or its equivalent) from an accredited college or university;
  • demonstrate the ability to pursue graduate study successfully; that is, to have attained a minimum overall undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of B (3.00);
  • applicants with a GPA of 2.85 - 2.99 will be granted the status of “accepted with conditions” until the completion of 12 graduate credits with a GPA of 3.00 or higher.
  • applicants with an undergraduate GPA of less than 2.85 must take the GRE exam and earn a minimum of 1000; this will enable an applicant to be granted the status of “accepted with conditions” until the completion of 12 graduate credits with a GPA of 3.00 or higher.
  • present evidence of the ability to facilitate interpersonal relationships, an interest in the educational process and a commitment to student success in school; and an ability to work as part of a school team, as assessed in an individual and/or group interviews with program faculty, alumni, school district partners, and current students, a writing sample, and attested to through references;
  • submit three references (for example, from an employer, a professor or a personal character reference) attesting to the applicant's leadership and advocacy skills.
     

Matriculation Requirements

Matriculated students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in oral, written expression and critical thinking, and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above. Students with a GPA below 3.00, but with a cumulative GPA of 2.85 or above are admitted conditionally. An interim assessment of progress is conducted at the completion of 12 credits.
 

Transfer Credits

Before matriculation, graduate students may apply to graduate admissions and program coordinator for permission to transfer up to six (6) credits with grades of 3.0 or higher from other accredited graduate programs. These credits may not have been used for the awarding of another degree.
