School Counseling

Master's Plus in School Counseling

Students who possess a master’s degree from Loyola or another CACREP accredited institution may take the specific courses required by the Maryland Board of Professional Counselors to become a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). Students may take up to six (6) courses under the Master’s Plus; however, no more than six (6) credits may be taken outside of the school counseling program.

Degree Requirements

Professional Counselor Licensure (LCPC) is issued by The Board of Professional Counselors and Therapist through The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH).  We strongly encourage that individuals interested in becoming licensed as a professional counselor visit the Board of Professional Counselors and Therapist website to review licensure requirements.  Additionally, individuals should request a transcript review from the Board of Professional Counselors to determine the additional courses he or she needs to satisfy the educational requirements.  Individuals are assigned a Loyola academic advisor to assist them in course planning.

Program Outcomes

Students will apply to the Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists for Professional Counselor Licensure (LCPC).

Students in the Master's Plus program are not eligible for financial aid.
