AGSC Admissions Process

Students applying to the Alliance Graduate School of Counseling may apply as a Degree seeking (matriculated) or Non-Degree (non-matriculated).

Matriculated (Degree-seeking) Students
These are students who are pursuing an M.A. degree in Mental Health Counseling at either full or part-time status. Full-time status consists of a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester.  Part-time status requires at least 12 credits per calendar year.  Students who have satisfactorily completed all admission requirements may be admitted for the M.A. in Mental Health Counseling degree with Regular status. Regular status students are matriculated. Only regular status students may become candidates for the degree. 
Non-Degree Students
Students who have completed a graduate degree in either Counseling, Psychology or Social Work may apply for non-degree seeking status which will allow the student to take additional classes to complete the educational requirements necessary to sit for national certification and licensing exams, or to supplement previous education with a Christian perspective. Students may take classes full or part-time but must follow the rules and standards of the program including prerequisite courses, etc.
