Thinking about a career change?
Have you completed a graduate degree and want to become a licensed Mental Health Counselor?
Learn how Loras College can help you achieve your goal!
Loras College offers a special non-degree graduate program of study designed for individuals who have already completed a graduate degree in psychology or a related field within the past ten years and are interested in pursuing coursework so that they may be eligible for licensure as a Mental Health Counselor.
The number of credits required may vary significantly from student to student and will depend upon prior graduate coursework taken (either at Loras College or at another institution).
Applicants should be aware that no federal financial aid exists for this coursework, though they may seek private funding options.
Loras College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and the curriculum in this program is designed to fulfill the current course requirements for the State of Iowa’s Mental Health Counselor license, but the license can also transfer to different states across the country.
