Students, with a bachelor’s degree—from LVC or any accredited institution—in any field, who were not enrolled in the College’s undergraduate 3+2 program, will be considered for admission to the graduate-only portion of M.S. in School Counseling program pending a review of the following requirements.
- Lebanon Valley College graduate online application and a 500-word (maximum) essay focused on the applicant’s long-term goals in the school counseling profession and how LVC’s program will help them reach those aspirations
- Minimum college GPA of 3.00 (on a 4.0 scale); any applicants not meeting this standard will be considered on a case-by-case basis
- Current résumé
- Two recommendation forms
- Official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduation institutions attended
GRE scores are not required, but applicants may—at their option—submit them for consideration.
The most qualified applicants, based on a review of the above admission standards, will be invited to campus for a personal interview; a final admission decision will be made after the interview.
Six credits of college-level mathematics and six credits of college-level English are required prior to completion of the program. In the instance that these credits have not been satisfied during a student’s undergraduate degree program, students will create a plan to take these courses at LVC or another accredited institution by the time they finish their master’s degree in School Counseling.
* If missing one or more required pre-requisites, please contact the program director for further information.
For students who want to transfer graduate credits into LVC’s program during the application process, those credits must have been earned through a CACREP-accredited program, with any transfer-course grade being no lower than a “B.” Also, students can only transfer a maximum of 15 credits, and transfer credits will not be accepted for PSY 701, 750, 711, 712, 871, 902, or 903.
