Please be advised that ONLY students on a master's program track must take and pass the Comprehensive Exam. Students who are ONLY pursuing a Certificate (e.g., SAC, CADC, Advanced Cert, Post-Master's Cert) do not have to take the Comprehensive Exam. ??

Again, the application deadline is Thursday, October 6th, so please be sure to submit your materials on time.  Students must complete two steps to register for the Comprehensive Exam:

  1. Students must register through NEST for the Counseling Program's zero credit Comprehensive Exam course (listed under "Generic Graduate Course (GRAD)").  This replaced the paper form from the Graduate School, and will serve as your official University registration.  Students will also receive Comps results through NEST at the end of the semester, just as you would a regular class grade.  The course you should register for is GRAD CMP-18 (Call #22495) and Dr. Shurts is the listed instructor.  If you intend to sit for the exam, you should register now (must be before the deadline).
  2. The application form, (sent to each of you) also must be completed and submitted to our Department Administrator, Lucille Gesualdi, University Hall, Counseling Suite, Room 3165 by the deadline. This serves as your registration within our Program.  Students MUST also submit a MONEY ORDER for $50.00 with the application made out to "CCE" (The Center for Credentialing & Education)--Checks are no longer be accepted by CCE, so please purchase a money order.

Student ID Numbers (not Social Security Numbers) must be included on the Comprehensive Exam application. Social Security Numbers will not be accepted and your application will not be processed. Again, please note that you do not need to have your advisor sign the form--We will forward your application to the Graduate Program Coordinator for signature.

Dates for this semester's Comps Info Session will be announced in a separate message.

If you have any questions about the registration process, please contact your advisor, our Dept Administrator, or Dr. Shurts.
