CACREP Information

EKU School and Mental Health Counseling Programs 


We recommend you review the CACREP website at to explore the reasons for  and benefits to attending a CACREP accredited program but these include:

  • Assurance of the quality of your academic program: recognition that the program has been evaluated and meets or exceeds national standards
  • Streamlines the licensure application process: knowledge that the graduate has met prerequisites for credentialing and is ready for entry into professional practice
  • Research shows CACREP graduates perform better on the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE).
  • understanding that the focus of the program will be on professional counseling, not psychology, education or other helping professions        
  • CACREP programs have been reviewed against professionally approved standards.
